manuel arturo abreu is presenting solo exhibition resilience at Seattle’s INCA, opening on October 15 and running to November 26.
Curated by Bergman & Salinas, abreu’s new body of work explores the social practice of ‘bouncing back’ under capitalism and looks at the way the language of neo-romanticism and “contemporary modes of resilient individualism naturalize capitalism’s violence, and invoke not nature as the sublime, but capital itself.”
abreu is a poet and artist who works with text, photography and ephemeral sculpture that explores the space of precarity and slippage between “art/thought, attention/care, performance/inhabitation, and relation/labor.”
There will be an artist talk on October 22 at 3pm.
