02.29.2020 | PATRICIA OLYNYK: The Mutable Archive | Free

February 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Categories: Visual Arts


Public opening reception for Patricia Olynyk.

The Mutable Archive prioritizes the relationship between each author/performer and their chosen subject while exposing how various narrative strategies can reveal the social and political challenges of the past and the present. Rather than follow conventional archival theory, commissioned writers – artists, musicians, historians, an opera singer, and a spiritual medium – bridge historically rich material and contemporary issues relating to identity politics, migration, racial profiling and gender bias, ultimately revealing the fictitious foundations of the human taxonomy itself.
