A Certain Urge (Towards Turmoil) exists along a fault-line of shaky utopian dreams. Rising from anxieties caused by the perpetual possibility of societal disaster, the show reflects on a past and present connected through turmoil. These artists employ poeticized tactics of disruption to draw out hypocrisies within dominant sociopolitical systems, and undermine the tight grip of political dogma. Active agents in their local communities, while contributing to essential international discourse, the artists are in dialogue with each other as they present previous work alongside work created for the exhibition. Through sculpture, installation, performance and intervention, A Certain Urge (Towards Turmoil) evokes a space to imagine versions of the world yet unattained.
