Join us Friday, September 8, 5-8 pm for the opening reception of «Let Me Be an Object that Screams», curated by Matt Morris.

«Let Me Be an Object that Screams» on view September 8 — October 21, 2017 at Gallery 400.

Curated by Matt Morris, «Let Me Be an Object that Screams» brings together a range of works by contemporary artists in order to test psychoanalytic concepts of ‘subject-hood’ and the ways a subject’s counterpart, the ‘object,’ has been animated by artistic and exhibition practices. Informed by psychoanalytic theory, the exhibition looks beyond the strictures and symptoms of a present-day oppressive society for yet unexplored psychological and political possibilities in and through objecthood. In so doing, the exhibition comprises three sections: one in which the content of psychoanalytic ‘object relations theories’ are reconsidered; a second that fantasizes the erotic possibilities of preferring to be an object; and finally a group of artists whose works question the object’s function within exhibition design, supported by more recent philosophical developments of ‘thing-theory’ and ‘object-oriented ontologies.’

Artists: Terry Adkins, Nayland Blake, Anna Campbell, Nona Faustine, Jeff Gibson, Jennifer Chen-su Huang, Thomas Huston, E. Jane, Arnold J. Kemp, Isabelle McGuire, Catalina Ouyang, Puppies Puppies, Oli Rodriguez and Jovencio de la Paz, and Leonard Suryajaya
