Poetics of Relation, 2016

Group exhibition, text

DAC Gallery, Los Angeles


Poetics of Relation was a curatorial project that investigated notions and modalities of interdisciplinarity in artistic expressions. Éduard Glissant's same-titled book 'Poetics of Relation' was used as inspiration and as a theoretical framework for this exploration. The exhibition suggested interdisciplinarity as a hopeful and performative force that can invent a new language towards more tolerance among different cultures. 

The exhibition was on view at the DAC Gallery in Los Angeles and featured works by Matthew Grant Anson, Kiyomi Fukui, Cheryl Humphreys, Olga Lah, Elena Manferdini, Mike Mcmullen, Michael Nannery and Miggie Wong. An art catalog was designed by Arms Studio.
