IN-FAUX-STRUCTURE, opening in August 2019
Guest Curated by artists Madison LaVallee, Julie Casper Roth, and Melissa Sarris
Roads. Pipes. Wires. Bureaucracies. These words describe infrastructure.
In-faux-structure, an ambitious indoor/outdoor exhibition scheduled for August – October 2019, will investigate gender and identity as they relate to infrastructure. Who makes decisions related to infrastructure? Who is responsible for the labor? Who designs it?
This exhibition opportunity is open to artists and non-artists to consider their definition of infrastructure, how it can be improved, who it serves, who it doesn’t serve, and who is left out altogether. We are seeking playful responses to the systems that surround us.
The name In-“faux”-structure refers to false or erroneous meaning related to infrastructure, the ephemeral nature of building materials, and other ambiguities related to physical and social systems and their creation.
