Opening Saturday, October 2nd, from 6PM – 10PM
On view through Saturday, December 11th
The gallery opened with an investigation of dreams (Freud, surrealism), proceeded to analyze the commodity (Marx, pop), and, presently, we’re exploring the domain of everyday life (Lefebvre, Situationists, photography emphasis).
Particularly, we’ve come to understand the everyday as the intersection of individual consciousness and the abstract systems that govern us (government, economy, interpellation of social roles). Lefebvre, for example, posits that everyday life consists of rhythms/patterns (sunrise/sunset, 9-5s, tempo of traffic lights, etc.). Debord argues that everyday life has been colonized, intercepted by the commodity, and rendered “boring”. Art and politics, on this Situationist view, ought to interrupt this hypnosis (spectacle) through the construction of acute moments of life (situations). Everyday life is psychological, too, and Freud notes subtle glimpses into the unconscious via covert slips of the tongue.
* Opening is masked, distanced, and capacity enforced.
