We, The Outsiders Opening Reception

September 5, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We, The Outsiders is an art exhibition that explores several perplexing questions: “Can it be said that art has a consciousness of its own? And if such a consciousness were independent of us, where would it place us in relation to itself?” I have no idea what that means, but I do know that the exhibition revolves around a gigantic egg—which probes, like the classic chicken-and-the-egg conundrum (I prosaically assume), where consciousness begins and ends when it comes to art. Curated by Chus Martinez, We, The Outsiders brings together works (including the above video) by an international quartet of artists, and will be on view at the physical gallery space of e-flux (the publishing platform, archive, artist project, curatorial platform, and enterprise founded in 1998) through September and October. If you enjoy contemplating the philosophy of art and the potential solipsism of creativity, consider attending the opening ceremony, where Martinez will be in conversation with Boris Groys—noted art critic, media theorist and philosopher.
