It’s After the End of the World
Curated by Anaïs Duplan
Opening Reception: Friday August 7, 7-9 PM
The Spacesuits is an ongoing endeavor to generate art-objects that speak to the Afrofuture. Having placed a series of multimedia installations in Reykjavík, Chicago, Santa Fe, and Portland, The Spacesuits will facilitate one final exhibition for the summer. “It’s After the End of the World” will feature works by both The Spacesuits collective and a roster of guest artists whose practices demonstrate a sensitivity to changing ideals of the Future.
Boston’s Maria Molteni contributes her “Security Scans” alongside Martha Tuttle’s sculptural musings on the ‘manmade unmade.’ Augie Lehrecke’s meticulous “Formal Origins” drawings speaks to themes also present in Caity Kennedy’s painting, “The World We Live In.” The Internet, new age spirituality, and new age race relations all come together in The Spacesuit’s last summer stop. Channeling Sun Ra’s Arkestra, The Spacesuits asks, “It’s after the end of the world. Don’t you know that yet?”
