This exhibition is organized around a simple but meaningful commonality: movement. Although movement is not materially or thematically present in any overt way, each piece in the show has some connection to movement through either process, subversion, or suggestion. Movement as a means to bring certain works by certain artists together was a responsive choice arrived at after considering works that we felt could generate a productive situation if brought together. Just as we hope is true for the experience of the exhibition, we allowed each choice of invited artist or requested artwork to guide us from one to the next, thereby creating a network of pieces that would pick up on one another in ways that couldn’t be explained or made sense of other than through direct engagement with their shared presence. A relationship to movement as part of the making or viewership of the work soon developed as something that might provide enough of a framework to move beyond taste or convenience while still resisting the heaviness of a concept-driven project that would diminish each artwork’s capabilities in service to the big idea.

Notes on artist contributions
Eli Greene: movement of memories, interfering and generating, objects and images migrate and change as they move in and out of forms

Jason Hirata: projections devoid of the very sequences of sounds and images moving through time that they exist to serve, devices borrowed and brought together from various sources

Lin Hixson: making drawings to make performances, not from but alongside, indirect and necessarily so, there is movement and there will be movement

Devin T. Mays: movement paused and attention called, stopping to regard, encounters captured to join others in picture before moving on

Gloria Maximo: labor on the roadways, commuting and transporting, moving selves and moving goods, working and working paintings

Luis Romero: assemble from marks and scraps, build across and under and above, a space to navigate
