CAC SPRING EXHIBITION 2017

Identities and wayfinding designed for the solo exhibitions of artists Noel Anderson (Blak Origin Moment) and Andrea Bowers (Womxn Workers of the World Unite). On Display February 10, 2017 through June 18, 2017, Blak Origin Moment (above) and Womxn Workers of the World Unite! (below) curated by Steven Matijico

BLAK ORIGIN MOMENT:
From tattered old rugs to mechanically-produced tapestries, Anderson embeds a spectrum of fibers with found images and physical usage just long enough to fray their edges and challenge their legibility. Blak Origin Moment continues this course as Anderson pushes his study into the fraught post-Ferguson era of Black Lives Matter and heightened racial tensions in the United States. Prompted by the provocative question, “when did you know you were black?” he collects oral, artifact-based and visual histories to ultimately restructure the origin and genealogy of black consciousness.

WOMXN WORKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!:
Bowers looks to (and participates in) civil disobedience as a lens to explore contemporary causes including women’s, gay & trans rights, immigration, environmental protection and labor relations. Through the cross-disciplinary intersections of drawing, photography, video, collage, craft, performance, participation and archival research she raises awareness of persecuted communities while highlighting individual voices within collective entities.
