THE RIGHT TO BREATHE/ A Virtual Exhibition


Virtual group exhibition with Eleni Kamma at Undercurrent, Brooklyn, NY


07/06 – 30/09/2021


In dialogue with The Right to Silence?, at Anya and Andrew Shiva Gallery the second iteration of the group exhibition at undercurrent.nyc, takes as a starting point the “shortness of breath” derived from the experience of political pressure, social injustice, and economic austerity, exploring its connection with poetics, live art, and embodied politics. The concerns driving the “I Can’t Breathe” debates around race, discrimination, and violence have been left unconfronted for far too long. At the same time, the countless social injustices and the politics of disposability that the COVID-19 pandemic lays bare expose the delusions of a post-racial society, as well as the deprivation of the right to breathe (Mbembe). The topic of breathability that the exhibition identifies and aims to historicize also provides an insight into the ongoing revaluation of criminal justice reform.
