More about Irrational Exhibits 12

Irrational Exhibits 12: Body, Materiality, and Systems features live performance, installation, and video that examine the duality of balance and crisis in a world spinning out of control. The 22 participating artist’s works invite viewers to consider how balance is found within community as it relates to social, political, gender, ecological, and technological-related issues and how we can reimagine a balanced present and future.

Live performance, installation, video, sculpture, and audio works take place in 6 galleries throughout the historic Bendix Building. The one night event is presented simultaneously, creating a distinctly somatic exhibition experience. The use of unconventional space is a defining feature. Therefore performances are also presented in hallways and staircases throughout the building. Formal, informal, and in-between spaces occupied by participating artists reflect a diversity of lived experiences. In addition, cultural identities also embody the practitioners as they forge new modes of belonging and inclusion in an increasingly fraught world. The synergistic rhythm of the Irrational Exhibits project, with its overlapping live performances, installations, and videos, creates new temporal space. These experiences for artists and viewers alike, prompt all to consider how meaning is made in real-time, and in the malleable wake of memory.

Beginnings, Bendix Building Irrational Exhibits

The Irrational Exhibits project began in 2001 at Track 16 Gallery, Santa Monica as a one-night only event. Click Here to read more about past Track 16 exhibitions. As a result, central to the project is each artist’s work functioning as a setting for evolving actions. All performances happen simultaneously, prioritizing physical engagement. Therefore, the body and materials, and a risk-taking process of making work happens in front of an audience in real time.
