Mana Contemporary announces “44 Signs of the Times,” a group exhibition guest curated by Owen Duffy, director of the Yeh Art Gallery at St. John’s University. On view from through July 23, the show features 44 works from 26 artists and one artist duo, each functioning as a sign of the recent state of our world.
“This exhibition does not aspire to offer a diagnosis of what ails the times or a prescriptive cure,” said Duffy. “Rather, it’s a document, an incomplete picture of our world from within.”
“44 Signs of the Times” is divided into seven thematic sections related to recent events: spread, escape, precarity, languish, continuities, filtration, and acts of God.
Participating artists include ASMA, Melissa Brown, Antoine Catala, Kanad Chakrabarti, Rafael Domenech, Nikita Gale, Alina Grasmann, Renée Green, Guo Hongwei, Nick Irzyk, Ann Veronica Janssens, Myeongsoo Kim, Mo Kong, Savannah Knoop, Jim Kuhlman, Julie Malen, Azikiwe Mohammed, Christine EgañaNavin, Trevor Paglen, Sarah Pettitt, Lee Relvas, Kristen Sanders, Mary Simpson, Cynthia Talmadge, Martha Tuttle, Robert Scott Whipkey, and Stella Zhong.
