FAILURE was an ever-present word in 2016. Media outlets were united in dubbing it the worst year in history as we were bombarded with Brexit, Trump and the rise of the alt right; migrants, terrorist attacks and an unsolvable Syrian situation; dead celebrities, a housing crisis and Harambe.
Yet what does it truly mean to FAIL in 2017? Humans FAIL over and over again. We learn and grow through FAILURE, we lol at FAILURE, people are united by FAILURE. FAILURE has an acceptable and necessary role in culture, society and life; FAILURE results in creativity, surprise, humor and fun. We all FAIL.
The 5 artists will explore and challenge the notion FAILURE, documenting the often unexpected and provocative results of what it means to FAIL in 2017.
Private View | Opening Night – 12th of May
