The world is brimming with things, and seen from a non-anthropocentric vantage, all things are equal, whether animal, vegetable, or mineral. In the exhibition “And Another Thing” art by Carl Andre, Laura Carton, Valie Export, Regina José Galindo, Tom Kotik, Mary Lucking, Bruce Nauman, Grit Ruhland, Anthony Titus, Ruslan Trusewych, and Zimoun go beyond reassessing the human subject; they reject the subject/object paradigm entirely. In place of this paradigm—one based on difference—they operate on the interchangeability of humans and things. The artists have not necessarily prioritized humans as subjects, nor as objects, but simply as things, like everything else.
Guest curators: Katherine Behar and Emmy Mikelson.
"And Another Thing" is made possible, in part, with the support of Bitforms, Paula Cooper Gallery, Promoteo Gallery, and Video Data Bank.
