Something (you can’t see, on the other side, of the wall from this side) casts a shadow, Artist Panel Discussion, July 26, 6–8pm

AK Burns

 

SOMArts is proud to present Something (you can’t see, on the other side, of the wall from this side) casts a shadow, a multi-disciplinary exhibition curated by Juana Berrío exploring the politics of space in the urban landscape. 

Opening with a free public reception on Saturday, July 14, 6:00–9:00 pm, the exhibition includes a selection of sculptures, videos, photographs, graphic scores, and paintings by a multi-generational group of artists from around the world.

On Thursday, July 26 from 6:00–8:00 pm, join writers Dodie Bellamy, Daphne Gottlieb, and Tongo Eisen-Martin in a conversation in response to the exhibition including readings from each of their work.

The title of the exhibition is borrowed from a writing exercise that poet Ed Roberson gave to his students while he was a Visiting Professor at UC Berkeley in 2014. The assignment appears in Dodie Bellamy’s essay “In the Shadow of the Twitter Towers,” published in her collection When the Sick Rule the World (Semiotext(e), 2015), which forms the basis for a reading room that is also part of the exhibition.
