Through the works on display, created by a community of queer artists, Congeal explores the comfort and discomfort of living in a body. The thirteen artists in this exhibition abstract the corporeal, manipulating normative notions of what constitutes embodiment. Secretions, body dysmorphia, and various body fluids act as potent symbols of the blurring of outlines. While appropriating Dada and Surrealists techniques, the artists reject the misogyny and homophobia that is so often associated with these movements. It is in this rejection that the works of art in this exhibition expand and pervert these histories, articulating a space that is grotesque, gooey, and queer with no apology. Curated by Dodd BFAs Kira Hynes, SABO, and Dodd alum Lindsay Parker.
Artists included in the exhibition: Olivia Babuka Black, Mac Balentine, AC Carter, Alyssa Davis, Lindy Erkes, Grace Farrell, Greta Hartman, Kira Hynes, Ruby Mars, Penske McCormack, Morgan McCann, Lindsay Parker, and SABO.
