Curated by Emily Roysdon
This exhibition is the second in the 'open call' Currents Exhibition series at A.I.R. Gallery.
January 5 - 28, 2012
Illegitimate And Herstorical presents works by eleven artists that consider alternative economies of labor, love, power, crossings and collectivity. Exhibiting queer relationships to history and a healthy disrespect for master narratives these artists work through the precariousness of legitimacy. The projects displayed offer a telling that bridges reportage and creative proposition. Portraiture, consciousness raising, incitement, and insertion – poetic and effectual strategies that all come to bear on the stability and functionality of institutions. Each work a stone thrown. Illegitimate and Herstorical.
featuring works by A Feminist Tea Party, Bland Boydston III, Rachel Farmer, Barbara Hammer, Reena Katz, Lucretia Knapp, Barbara Greene Mann, Alice O'Malley, Lacey Jane Roberts, Tobaron Waxman and Chris Vargas.
