MA Curatorial Practice presents RE:ACTION, curated by Amanda Lee, an exhibition inspired by American artist Trevor Paglen’s inquiries into the production of space. The show re-examines the human condition and the ways in which complex actions across a vast field of natural and technological phenomena have altered societies across the globe, creating a never-ending feedback loop of lies, manipulations, and violence. The selected artworks in RE:ACTION offer a compensatory prospect of long-diminished virtues, such as belief in beliefs and an ethical ethos, which help to shore up our strength amid the difficulties of our times. The works on view propose an alternative mindfulness, alert to the “products of space” around us that have created the tumult of negativity that burdens so many social concerns in contemporary life.
