Description

This screening is presented in the context of School of Chairs, the first group exhibition presented at The David Ireland House, on view February 17–June 9 . More info: http://500cappstreet.org/current-exhibitions/

Curated by Bob Linder and Diego Villalobos, School of Chairs presents works in diverse media from a wide-ranging coterie of artists (including Forrest Bess, Jo Hanson, Los Jaichackers, K.r.m. Mooney, Anicka Yi and others) who “through expanding and redefining their respective mediums, have by consequence reshaped how we think about social and gender politics, the environment, and the role institutions play in shaping art history” while (in the spirit of David Ireland) creating relationships between artworks, domestic and non-domestic spaces, and devalued artifacts.

In sympathetic resonance with this ambitious exhibition, Your Eye Would Glide Over the Grey presents film/video works which explore the secret lives of objects; the interplay of intimacy, identity and consciousness as modulated by constructed (and deconstructed) space; and conceptual contrasts between art and non-art objects.
