NO ATLAS is produced by our 2015/16 SHIFT Residency artists. The unique nature of SHIFT Residency draws out unspoken challenges and considerations in the lives of its participating artists, who dedicate a significant portion of their time towards supporting other artists. Reflecting possibilities for navigating otherness at the intersection of time, place, and identity, the work in NO ATLAS maps territories known and unknown, real and imagined, material and spectral, playing out each artist's relationships to alterity. The group collectively examines modes of displacement, using video, sculpture, installation, and performance as tools for investigation into origins, cosmologies, pedagogies, and the shifting dimensions of interpersonal relationships. All artwork and programming presented for NO ATLAS has been conceived of and created by the artists since they began the SHIFT Residency in August 2015.
This event is being held in conjunction with the exhibition NO ATLAS, on view June 10 - July 9, 2016.
