Disrupting Cultural Signifiers in a Neoliberal Age
Sensible Disobedience considers the way images, words, symbols, and signs—forms of representation—inundate public and private spaces and shape personal experience in the age of neoliberal capitalism. More specifically, the exhibition investigates semiotics, the study of how meaning is created and communicated through signs and symbols, and the politics of representation in contemporary society.
The works of Lyndon Barrois Jr., Brandon Forrest Frederick, Christopher K. Ho, Alex Savage, Oli Watt, and Jordan Weber, examine the relational and social role of representation through subtle modes of interruption and disruption. Through interdisciplinary artistic practices, these artists consider what is represented in contemporary media, the ways images and objects infiltrate our daily experience, and how cultural assumptions inform the navigation of a world heavily mediated by the screen.
