The Ford Foundation Gallery will reopen its physical space with everything slackens in a wreck, curated by Andil Gosine.
The titular metaphor of wreckage evokes color and the destruction left in its wake, but it also echoes what the exhibition’s curator calls the „wrecking work” of marginalized peoples who answer this destruction with art that invents its own subversive forms of order, rendering alternate visions of existence, and co-existance, imaginable, and therefore possible. Featuring the work of four artists with a shared diasporic; heritage and curated by Trinidadian scholar, author and artist Andil Gosine, everything slacks in a wreck is the first show to appear in the Ford Foundation Gallery space since its closure in
March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The exhibition will be running from June 1rst to August 20, 2022. The gallery will host an opening reception with the artists on June 1 from 7-9 p.m and viewing hours are Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6p.m.
