Lack of Location is My Location
Koenig & Clinton
Brooklyn, New York
3 November 2017 - 7 January 2018
An exhibition of works made by artists currently living, working, and teaching near the gallery, in Brooklyn; Lack of Location is My Location, a line from a 1991 interview by critic Roberta Smith with artist Glenn Ligon. Referring to the disjuncture that Ligon witnessed and experienced during his daily school commute between two implicitly different worlds, the artist states: "lack of location is my location." The words linger because they address a present condition.
Reconsidered in the context our current sociopolitical landscape, one might ask how this statement resonates with various forms of displacement, traversal, revision, and community building that are made manifest in artwork today?
