I Hear It Everywhere I Go

Franklin Street Works
11/11/17 - 1/7/18


"I hear it everywhere I go” is a group exhibition that includes sculptures, text works, installations, and videos ranging from 1995 to today. The show aims, in part, to explore dissatisfaction around the pursuit of the American Dream and how it is expressed. The curatorial premise was inspired by artist Cady Noland’s (b. 1956) writings on and stated thinking about the American tendency to express violence through socially acceptable release valves such as figuratively "trashing" celebrities on the one hand and conning or preying on populations outside of dominant power structures - often in the name of entrepreneurship - on the other.

The exhibiting artists exponentially expand on and add to the show's themes through a variety of strategies, including: performed fictions that resituate celebrity and commodity culture; collaborative text pieces that give institutionally marginalized voices visibility; appropriation of pop culture to explore the isolation of fame; the mining of distinctly American signifiers such as varsity sports and daytime TV talk shows; and juxtapositions of post-consumer objects that read on multiple levels and often indicate how a person's race, class, gender, and sexuality can position them in a simultaneous state of hypervisibility and invisibility in American culture.

Exhibiting artists: Alex Bag, Michael Blake, Nayland Blake, Jen DeNike, Jonah Freeman & Justin Lowe, Rashid Johnson, Adam McEwen, Rodney McMillian, Tameka Norris, Cheryl Pope, Mikel Rouse, and Melissa Vandenberg
