A Situation of Meat

At Disjecta

Sat, Sep 23 to Sun, Oct 29

show

OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 6–9PM / FREE
MEL CARTER / MAGGIE-ROSE CONDIT / BRAXTON CONGROVE / ​DAKOTA GEARHART / Featuring EIZABETH MPUTU
CURATED BY JULIA GREENWAY
 
Please join us for the opening reception for season 7 Curator-in-Residence Julia Greenway's inaugural exhibition: A Situation of Meat.

A Situation of Meat presents a group of new works by Mel Carter, Maggie-Rose Condit, Braxton Congrove, Dakota Gearhart, and Elizabeth Mputu, exploring contemporary femme identity as mediated through online culture. Using sculpture, video, and digital prints, A Situation of Meat finds inspiration in the paradox between the beauty and the grotesque of gendered self-presentation.

Viewers are greeted by Gearhart’s canopy of sculpted electrical cords. These open onto an illuminated pool housing a multiple channel video installation. Congrove creates a playful staging of her sculptural arches, clouds, and soft pools. Carter fills an arched wall and reflective pool with a dream like video piece with images of ume, clay, and tapioca. Condit recreates her childhood bedroom in And Don’t Call Me Shirley with furnishings covered in bubble wrap, sugar paste, and dripping maraschino cherries. Utilizing Disjecta’s Flex Space, Elizabeth Mputu exhibits new video work from her ongoing digital project, Cyberserenity. Together these works form an eclectic expression of navigating femme identity across digital and physical platforms.

All ages | Cash bar 21+
