Matter Out of Place

Archived Event

No Longer Showing.

Time and space in the urban setting are often highly regimented, with different moments and places typically allocated for specific behaviors, both public and private. Yet often overlooked in any such structure is the personal history carried within each individual, which inevitably informs her or his experience at the same time that it offers the possibility of reshaping the use of any site. Taking its title from anthropologist Mary Douglas’s analyses of how disturbances arise in the city’s physical contours and social order, Matter Out of Place presents new work by New York–based artists who observe, represent, and activate public sites, generating alternative relationships to such strictly defined spaces as the housing project, park, and museum lobby. Artists include Paul Branca, Frank Heath, David Horvitz, Fawn Krieger, Sara Jordenö (in collaborations with Amber Horning and Twiggy Pucci Garcón), and Anna Lundh.
