Details

Sick Time, Sleepy Time, Crip Time focuses on how the body is articulated in various discourses around health. The artists in this exhibition, through artworks and practices with care-focused groups, examine how support for the body in states of illness, rest, and disability can prompt us to re-imagine collective forms of existence as life under capitalism becomes impossible.

Sick Time, Sleepy Time, Crip Time: Against Capitalism’s Temporal Bullying provides a platform for exploring collective forms of healing the way traumas are held in the body and dealing with structural processes of exclusion. To this end, artworks dealing with care, illness, fitness, sleep, labor, alternative temporalities, and wellness culture provides a locus for ongoing conversations about relief and potential repair.

The exhibition is curated by Taraneh Fazeli and artists include Fia Backström, Danilo Correales, Jen Liu, Sondra Perry, Cassie Thornton and Constantina Zavitsanos.
