Elegant Disruption includes photos, videos, and other works that bring together artists who embrace new methodologies of engagement and connective practices. This exhibition embraces a wide range of social and interventionist actions that produce powerful, poetic, and alluring works of art – images that beckon the viewer to learn more about the underlying relational processes and social concepts. These works have in common a poetic approach to social, political, economic, or environmental transformation.
The six artists in Elegant Disruption are each asking different questions around sites of social intervention. What is it about certain sites that attract us? What kind of experiences, if any, can reinscribe them? Can the reinscriptions last? Could social transformation happen? Each work frames these questions within elegant conditions that demand to be considered.
