Abstract (English)

"Influenced by performance, conversation, and writing as modes of engaging with criticality and intimacy, Close Readings brings together practices whose insides and outsides are difficult to distinguish. These practices are by turns invested in uncovering the frailty of language, prodding at cultural anxieties and individual pleasures, excavating and refusing legacies, asking for tenderness, applying pressure, attending to the complications and vulnerabilities of being together while we are implicated—politically, socially, personally—by artworks and their demands on us. While some of the works in the exhibition illustrate a complex and subjective coming-to-terms with an artwork, an object, a person, or a history, others craft performative structures for facing our own entanglements, political commitments, and anxieties as spectators. Together, they trace the possibility of alternatives to detached observation, of a move from critical distance to critical closeness." -- Publisher's website.
