AUTOMAT Collective is pleased to welcome back Incubation Series curators and artists. Join us for Flooding, Incubation Series IX, opening on Friday, January 26th exploring the malleability, porosity, and transformative nature of memory and "rememory."
As Toni Morrison describes in her poignant essay "The Site of Memory,” rememory, like the water of the Mississippi remembering its river beds, is the work of things “forever tr[ying] to get back to where [they were],” often born in “a rush of imagination”—a “flooding.” The four artists, Danièle Dennis, James Allister Sprang, Monika Uchiyama, and Eric Yue, consider such “flooding,” or rememory, in relation to personal, collective, familial, and cultural encounters.
Opening reception: Friday, January 26th
6 PM-8 PM
Artist conversation: Thursday, February 8th
6 PM-7:30 PM
