This exhibition was juried by Avram Finkelstein.
Inspired by philosopher Herbert Marcuse’s notion of “the great refusal,” Embark’s latest exhibition Get Lost showcases contemporary takes on queer identity politics. By challenging the representational imagery that queer art is perhaps best known for, these artists present a new understanding of the self through displacement and absence, suggesting that queer activism in the digital age may take more nuanced forms of expression.
Artists: Simón Garcia-Miñaur (SFAI), Izidora Leber (SFAI), Richard-Jonathan Nelson (CCA), and Courtney Trouble (CCA).
