Images from Lissa Rivera‘s series “Beautiful Boy” will be on display in the upcoming exhibition “Ablutions of the Tongue” at Rundetaarn in Copenhagen. The exhibition was initiated by Kristina Steinbock and co-curated by Louise Lassen Iversen, and will be on view from February 29 – March 29, 2020.

The art exhibition “Ablution of the Tongue” is a transdisciplinary group exhibition which deals with the concept of othering, body and identity.

Othering can be defined as a set of dynamics, processes, and structures that engender marginality and persistent inequality across any of the full range of human differences. Dimensions of othering includes, but are not limited to, religion, sex, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status (class), disability, sexual orientation or any socially significant marker or characteristic.

The exhibition will explore conditions under which processes of othering seem to arise and in which specific group-based identities become socially significant. The artists will work through these complex networks of stories, addressing visions of other possible worlds than the norm where emotional resonance is used as evidence through the power of poetry, aesthetics and fiction.

Participating artists: Sian Kristoffersen (DK), Stella Geppert (DE), Katrin Ströbel (DE), Kristina Steinbock (DK), Lissa Rivera (US), Linda Lazer (N), Peter Birkholm and Michael Schiøler (DK).

Artworks by Amy Elkins are included in the upcoming exhibition “Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women of Louisiana” at the Ford Foundation Gallery. Curated by Monica Ramirez-Montagut, the exhibition will be on view from February 21 – May 9, 2020.

Per(Sister): Incarcerated Women of Louisiana explores one of the most critical issues of inequality and injustice facing our nation today through the lens of a population too often overlooked. With an alarming rise in rates of female incarceration, this exhibition seeks to build awareness of the crucial issues that impact women before, during, and after incarceration. The exhibition presents works from more than 30 artists who created new pieces based on the personal stories of 30 formerly and currently incarcerated women: persisters. Stories of loss, hope, despair, survival, triumph, and persistence are shared in a variety of forms, demonstrating simultaneously the universal struggles faced by communities impacted by incarceration and the personal resilience of each woman featured.

Per(Sister) originated at the Newcomb Art Museum of Tulane University under the leadership of museum director Monica Ramirez-Montagut with assistance from Laura Blereau, and was developed in equal partnership with Syrita Steib and Dolfinette Martin with additional support provided by Operation Restoration and Women with a Vision.
