Making Kin

In her book Staying with the Trouble, Donna Haraway presents a liquid worldview in which all actors, human and non-human, are equal and move in and out of each other in correlating influences.

Taking this proposition as starting point, this exhibition, organized by Amanda Vincelli with the newly-formed NAVEL Collective, a group of artists, scientists, designers, writers, coders, and community organizers, explores the ethics and meanings, forms and possibilities of kinship.

Includes works by Susanna Battin, Carmen Bouyer in collaboration with Aurore Saint Bris and Paul Saint Bris, David Chun, Sara Constantino, Kathleen Deems, Grace Denis in collaboration with Kira Lillie, Maurin Dietrich, Sara Drake, Encyclopedia inc. curated by Carlye Parker, Gloria Galvez, Hard-to-Read by Fiona Duncan, Hans-Henning Korb, Caroline Newton, Blaine O’Neill, Parch Es, Alexis Blaine Penney in collaboration with Ian McPherson, Nadja Oertelt, Jaklin Romine, Nina Sarnelle in collaboration with Sara Drake, Wieland Schoenfelder, Emily J. Snyder, Kristof Trakal and Jonas Wendelin.
