Dark Places: an experimental group exhibition

Dark Places: an experimental group exhibition

darkplaces.jpg
The Santa Monica Museum of Art presents Dark Places, conceived and curated by Joshua Decter, with an installation design by the architectural collective servo. An experimental group exhibition, Dark Places features the digitized works of 76 international artists and architects, organized into eight “curatorial scripts." The show is comprised of the simultaneous interplay of eight distinct micro-exhibitions. These sequences of works are displayed via eight projector units incorporated within a translucent architectural armature suspended in the museum’s space. Relationships among art, architecture, media, and technological design are reanimated here, generating a new kind of immersive environment—the hallucination of a futuristic noir scenario inside the frame of the museum.

Dark Places explores interconnections between memory and social space, proposing that traces of events, and their psychological consequences, are scripted into the fabric of our physical environment. Artists and architects from diverse cultural locations and ideological perspectives were invited to reflect upon a number of interrelated questions: What are the atmospheric, psychological, and political conditions that inflect our constructed environments? How do we navigate the ambiguous, enigmatic territories of social space and media culture, particularly in regard to traumatic events? At once linear and non-linear, there is no beginning, middle, or end to the exhibition; Dark Places is rhizomatic, in constant motion, a vibrating mosaic of digitized paintings, videos, architecture, animation and other media. The show is conceived as mobile and mutable, its network of participating artists and architects meant to expand as it travels to other contexts.

Participants:
Vito Acconci/Acconci Studio, Franz Ackermann, Francis Alys, Michael Ashkin, Jaime vila Ferrer, Dennis Balk, Matthew Barney, Judith Barry, Thomas Bayrle, Julie Becker, Douglas Blau, Monica Bonvicini, Daniel Bozhkov, Mark Bradford, Miguel Rio Branco, Troy Brauntuch, Candice Breitz, Francois Bucher, Sophie Calle, Eduardo Consuegra, Jordan Crandall, Teddy Cruz, Jonas Dahlberg, Stephen Dean, Anne Deleporte, Diller + Scofidio, Sam Durant, Anna Gaskell, Douglas Gordon, gruppo A12, Fariba Hajamadi, Pablo Helguera, Noritoshi Hirakawa, Julian Hoeber, Emily Jacir, Christian Jankowski, Vincent Johnson, Mitchell Kane, Joachim Koester, Glenn Ligon, Dorit Margreiter, Fiorenza Menini, John Miller, Muntadas, Paul Myoda, Yoshua Okon, Catherine Opie, Lucy Orta, Hirsch Perlman, Raymond Pettibon, Richard Phillips, Richard Prince, Raqs Media Collective, Alexis Rockman, Julian Rosefeldt, Aura Rosenberg, Peter Rostovsky, Sam Samore, Paige Sarlin, Julia Scher, Gregor Schneider, Allan Sekula, Andres Serrano, Nedko Solakov, Doron Solomons, Wolfgang Staehle, Javier Tellez, Anton Vidokle, Eyal Weizman/Nadav Harel, James Welling, Wim Wenders, Judi Werthein, Charlie White, Mans Wrange, Jody Zellen, and Heimo Zobernig.

His curatorial projects include Tele[visions] (Kunsthalle Vienna, 2001-02); Transmute (The Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, 1999); Heaven: Public View/Private View (PS1, 1998); and a/drift (The Center for Curatorial Studies Museum, Bard, 1997).

this was the worst exhibit I have ever been do. My friend mistaked for a bathroom it was so poorly done. That place is a den of filth and stupidity.

Not much on my mind lately. My life's been completely boring these days. I've just been hanging out not getting anything done. So it goes.

My mind is like a bunch of nothing, but I guess it doesn't bother me. I haven't been up to anything recently. I've pretty much been doing nothing to speak of.

Basically nothing noteworthy happening right now, but eh. Today was a complete loss. I haven't been up to much recently. I've pretty much been doing nothing worth mentioning.
