An acid western


Katja Novitskova and Timur Si-Qin

Artists: Katja Novitskova and Timur Si-Qin 
Curated by Agatha Wara

Adopting the language of global advertising and offering acute reflections on what it means to live under today’s historical conditions, Timur Si-Qin and Katja Novitskova present images, objects, and texts that address our contemporary state of conflation: the value transitions between the biological and the cultural, from information into matter. 


Damnatio Memoriae

Artist: Danh Vo, with Julie Ault and James Benning
Curated by Amy Zion

“Woe to him who says to the wood, “Awaken!”; to the dumb stone, “Arise!” Shall it teach? Behold it is overlaid with gold and silver, and no spirit is within it.”
