CURRENT EXHIBITS

Dred Scott

"It's the Political Economy, Stupid"
February 15th-April 10th, 2016

Chicago-born artist Dread Scott stands on Wall Street burning dollar after dollar before police show up in Money To Burn, just one of over a dozen contemporary videos and artworks that make up It's The Political Economy, Stupid. A traveling exhibition co-organized by Oliver Ressler and Gregory Sholette, It’s the Political Economy, Stupid features video works by artists from around the globe who critically address the "new norm" of the prolonged economic and political crisis that began in 2008. The title of the exhibition stems from James Carville’s catch phrase, “It’s the economy, stupid,” which became closely identified with Bill Clinton in his 1992 presidential campaign. Over three decades, neoliberal capitalism has driven most of the world’s governments to partly or wholly abandon their roles as arbitrators between the security of the majority and the profiteering of the corporate sector. It’s the Political Economy, Stupid proves that both art and artists can productively engage the seemingly insurmountable problems that stem from capital, crisis, and resistance.

Artists: Zanny Begg and Oliver Ressler; Filippo Berta; Libia Castro and Ólafur Ólafsson; Sylvain George; Paolo Cirio; Noel Douglas; Field Work; Yevgeniy Fiks, Olga Kopenkina, and Alexandra Lerman; flo6x8; Melanie Gilligan; Jan Peter Hammer; Alicia Herrero; Institute for Wishful Thinking; Sherry Millner and Ernie Larsen; Isa Rosenberger; and Dread Scott.

 Opening Reception: Thursday, February 18th, from 5-7pm

Variable Proportions

VARIABLE PROPORTIONS:

School of Art Faculty Exhibition

Variable Proportions is a law simply put as input disproportionate to output. This exhibit pulls from the wealth of backgrounds, knowledge, and globally recognized expertise of the School of Art faculty at the University of Cincinnati to explore this concept. Rooted in production and referential to the Law of Diminishing Returns, this host of artists seeks to answer questions about production associated with art and the relationship of input and output all within the language of their media.

Eco-Diversity

ECO-DIVERSITY: Computation and Identity
October 22nd -December 6th

As part of the DAAP-hosted conference, ACADIA 2015, “Eco-Diversity” expands on the theme, “Computational Ecologies: Design in the Anthropocene.” These curated installations address the role of the individual within the vast ecology of computation, through the lens of how one’s geography, identity and philosophy influence the positioning of one's work in reaction to, or in accordance with, the emergence of the Anthropocene. The event features the work of emerging designers whose divergent voices advance the discourse on computational design in architecture: Jennifer Bonner, Volkan Alkanoglu, Matthew Gillis, Zaneta Hong + Micahel Beaman, Shai Yeshayahu, Joshua Stein , Wendy Fok, Justin Diles, Catherine Richards, Martin Summers, Rachel Vroman with Jan Kokol + Carnaven Chiu, and SHO + ULR.
