Remote Castration responds to the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements and how they resonate with
a trajectory of feminist thought in contemporary art. The exhibition’s working title is derived from a piece of graffiti that serves as both provocation and barometer for collective consciousness. While marking a paradigm shift in outdated systems of authority, the present outing of sexual misconduct and abuses of power (on a scale unlike any before) raises important questions around social behavior, sexuality, ethics, truth, desire, repression, language, and privilege.
Co-curated by Catherine Taft and Hamza Walker.
This exhibition will be accompanied by the launch this September of a new series of 26 broadsheets titled Futura/No Futura, featuring concrete poetry by women artists.
