MEXERCIZE TEASER

Check out one of the Mexercizes now installed at Cypress College as part of Within, a group show curated by Chloë Flores. Up through November 5th!

ccartgallery.net

Cypress College Art Gallery is pleased to announce Within, an exhibition and program of events that explore the perceiving self, embodiment, and the corporeal production of knowledge, with artworks by Heather Cassils; Ashley Hunt and Taisha Paggett; Mariah Garnett, Guillermo Gómez-Peña and Roberto Sifuentes, Guru Rugu, and Julie Tolentino, curated by Chloë Flores.

Body-based perspectives and processes circulate widely in contemporary aesthetic fields that consider the body as a medium, subject and object.  However, discourse on the subject is nominal within the field of art. This lack of discourse raises questions about the perceived value of mind/body awareness in the production and reception of artists work, and complicates efforts to position corporeal perception and response within an art context. Within contributes to and comments on these rare, but developing discourses by examining the ways notions of embodiment form and inform artistic production. This exhibition presents the following works for consideration: Mexercize (2013) by Garnett, Gómez-Peña and Sifuentes, a performance video installation and conceptual exercise program; Par Course C: Formation, Drill, Maneuver (2013) by Hunt and Paggett, a group of public participatory sculptures that guide one through “movement-thought exercises;” Guru Rugu’s Greatest Hits (2013), a room for listening and contemplation with audio mediations led by Rugu; On Our Backs: After Raised by Wolves (2013) by Tolentino, an interactive installation based on moving bodies and host to one-to-one open studio explorations; and Becoming an Image (2012) by Cassils, a collection of photographs and audio installation from a growing body of work intersecting sculpture and performance. Each project shows the significance of kinesthetic, somatic, and haptic awareness in the exchange of artistic ideas, and reveals a variety of relationships that stem from experiences of transference and embodiment.
