Opening Reception for ‘BoK(s): Bodies of Knowledge’

December 6, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Public Space One is proud to present BoK(s): Bodies of Knowledge, a group exhibition opening Friday, December 6th.

BoK(s): Bodies of Knowledge brings together a group of national and local artists exploring physical existence in an increasingly abstracted world. Our everyday lives are dominated by discussions of artificial intelligence, “the cloud” and global financial stock markets – but where does this leave our physical bodies? The exhibition centers the physical body as the site of knowledge formation; how it is creative formed or torn apart as human bodies navigate the world and encounter other bodies.

The exhibition, curated by PS1 gallery team member Dominic Dongilli, features a diverse array of media including sculpture, book arts, performance, video, and participatory sound art. Exhibiting artists: Melissa Airy, Samantha M. Connors, Dorian Dean, Tristen Ives, Samantha Leopold-Sullivan, Meena Mangalvedhekar, Morgan Schoonover, Dani Sigler, and Jacob Yeates.

An open house reception will be held Friday, December 6 from 6-8pm at 229 N. Gilbert St. and will include Melissa Airy’s performance artwork Behold (2019).
