REVISITING HISTORIES: BIGGERS, GEYER/ORTIZ
Revisiting Histories conceptualizes history as a multifaceted field of meaning and narrative, intentionally constructed and maintained by powerful social and political structures. Taking the distinct artistic practices of Sanford Biggers, Andrea Geyer, and Simon J. Ortiz as a starting point, the exhibition emphasizes possible ways in which prevailing historical scripts can be modified by critical artistic voices. Discarding history as an accumulation of master-narratives, it re-imagines multiple histories excluded from official discourse.
Revisiting Histories is curated by Niels Van Tomme, Director of Arts and Media at Provisions Learning Project.
The exhibition took place, in collaboration with the Lambent Foundation, October, 2009 – January, 2010.
