Artists & Curator Roundtable Discussion – May Contain Explicit Imagery

"May Contain Explicit Imagery" curated by Tucker Neel

A round-table discussion and walk-through with the artists & the curator will occur on August 24 from 5-7pm. This exhibition unites three very different artists: John Weston, Kiki Seror, and Nancy Baker Cahill, whose disparate practices and methodologies create content activated through corporeal allusion. In front of each of these artists’ works the act of looking becomes self-reflectively conspicuous as one is made aware of an unavoidable impetus to see things that are simply not there. Like Rorschach tests (but much more engaging), each of these artists’ works allows viewers the opportunity to investigate the impulses behind images that resist and also demand meaning. As the title of this exhibition implies, the images contained in the works on display, congealed in the viewer’s consciousness, range from erotic to disturbing, but in the end purposefully resist “literal” interpretation.

Led by curator Tucker Neel, all three artists will discuss their work in the exhibition and respond to questions from the curator and the audience.
