The Lack of Location Is My Location group exhibition is on at New York’s Koenig & Clinton, opening November 3 and running to January 7, 2018.
Featuring the work of artists living, working, and teaching near the Brooklyn gallery — including American Artist, Becca Albee, Eleana Antonaki, Kamrooz Aram and more — the show examines “various forms of displacement, traversal, revision, and community building that are made manifest in artwork today.”
The exhibition title is from a 1991 interview between critic Roberta Smith and artist Glenn Ligon, the latter of whom characterises the disjuncture between the ‘two worlds’ of his school and daily life in “lack of location is my location.” The show takes this idea further by applying it to a contemporary sociopolitical context.
