Abstract:

Liminal Forms is a group exhibition of works by Scott Benesiinaabandan, Jawa El-Khash, Marcus A. Gordon, Qendrim Hoti, and Mariam Magsi. It explores inter-cultural and cross-medium translations in contemporary art to understand aesthetically and materially hybrid manifestations motivated by the simultaneity of different cultures. By engaging with practices that are informed by interdisciplinary methods and actively acknowledging the artists’ Indigenous, third-culture and immigrant identities, I examine the tactics used by artists to communicate issues of origin, place, survival, identity, and agency. The artworks selected contemplate the complexity and ambiguity of contemporary co-existence. They offer a visual and contextual analysis of specific issues related to the following topics: ways of remembering misplaced, erased, and violent histories; forming relationships with culturally and geographically specific issues through the affect potential of inter-disciplinary art
