ON VIEW THRU SEPTEMBER 1, 2023: Curated by Erika Mei Chua Holum, artists locate wildness within the unbounded and unpredictable spaces often located in opposition to modernity’s orderly impulses. The exhibition features works by Isela Aguirre, Saran Alderson, Hannah Bender, Maddie Casagranda, Crystal Coutler, Maddy Foutz, Salma Hamouda, Blya Krouba, Lau De León, Jen Marion, Jo Phenneger, Mandana Ranjbar, Sajeela Siddiq, and Adrienne Simmons. Drawing from Jack Halberstam “Theories of The Wild” and through methods drawn from Halberstam’s radical queer practice and politics, the exhibition illuminates and expands the normative taxonomies and neat classifications in favor of fun, unruly, and disruptive actions that offer new possibilities for daydreaming, play, and revelry.
