FORT WORTH, TX.-
A major group exhibition, where is the power, curated by Terri Thornton of the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth opens at the Art Galleries at TCU
"Power will always reside where power is understood to reside." --Bruce High Quality Foundation
where is the power is a poetic collection of works that challenge conventions and undermine expectations through subtle gestures, associations, layered content, materials, language, proximity, scale, humor, personal and collective memory, intervention, presence and longing. The exhibition focuses on works by an impressive array of artists that speak to a need for thoughtful contemplation.
Artists in the exhibition include Alejandro Cesarco, Liam Gillick, Mona Hatoum, Robert Kinmont, Glenn Ligon, Josiah McElheny, Cornelia Parker, Kris Pierce, Chris Powell, Fred Sandback, Valeska Soares, Richard Wentworth, and John Wilcox.
Placed in neighborhoods segregated from each other, The Red Telephone is designed, through accompanying signage to invite public confessional, which will be carried by wireless transmission to an online based component where the signals are combined into a single streaming channel and catalogued for review on the site. Over time the web-based station will begin to reveal a dialogue where similarities, differences, opinions and retort find a place where the two wavelengths meet. The ultimate goal of the project is to provide a forum where anonymous conversation is organized into a singular communitys voice.
