On view at grayDUCK Gallery: The Only Knowledge Worth Possessing
The culmination of The Contemporary Austin's six-month Crit Group program, The Only Knowledge Worth Possessing includes work in video, sculpture, photography, performance, painting, drawing, and expanded artistic practices such as indexing and poetry by the nine artists who participated in Crit Group 2015. Featured artists are Sarah Hill, Ben Jurgensen, R. Eric McMaster, Katie Rose Pipkin, Rebecca Rothfus Harrell, Bobby Scheidemann, Pat Snow, Sherwin Tibayan, and Glenn Twiggs. The exhibition title, generated via a set of algorithms and web spiders crafted by Katie Rose Pipkin in her artwork headwaters (2015), speaks to the heterogeneity of each of the participating artist's practices and media. By turns laugh-out-loud funny and coolly cerebral, the works in The Only Knowledge Worth Possessing explore the complicated nature of authorship and craft; the regimentation, regulation and surveillance of bodies; and the politics of digital processes and the natural world. More information can be found at thecontemporaryaustin.org and at grayduckgallery.com.
