Reception: September 15, 6:00 – 10:00 PM

The exhibition Extratextual explores ways in which modes of writing, as well as concepts of textuality and narrative have informed artistic production. The exhibition will include contemporary and historical projects by artists and writers across disciplines and addresses ways in which texts have both informed and created their own cosmologies, event-scapes and terms of engagement, and how they inform our understandings of contemporary narrative, performance and culture.

The exhibition investigates the places for, and political implications of, de-instrumentalized forms of writing. In an age of austerity, neocolonialism, neoliberal uses of creativity and art marketing, these projects seek to identify ways in which art writing in-the-
expanded-field might enact resistance to such forces. They do so by articulating how the performativity, materiality and spacing of (re)emergent modes of artistic writing enact agonisms and solidarities in relation to audiences. They also consider art writing as an ethical practice towards an understanding / in defense of artistic knowledge.
