How can the shape of a work be a site of resistance? How do collaborative practices inform our ideas of activism in art? What does it mean for resistance to happen in an exhibition context? Squeaky Wheel’s summer group exhibition features a number of artists aiming to take these questions to task, while asking their own. Comprised of installations, performances, single-screen video work, video games, locative sound and media pieces, the exhibition points to strictures and traumas that have roots far preceding our current political moment, while proposing visions, sounds, and networks for a future. Opening reception includes a screening program, collaborative performance by Elisa Peebles & the United Melanin Society, and VJ dance-party set by W. Michelle Harris. Squeaky Wheel will also be releasing a video series of artist conversations throughout the exhibition.
