YBCA presents the latest Room for Big Ideas project, We Carry Each Other, an installation featuring works of art by Eliza Barrios, Lynn Breedlove, Philip Huang & Theo Knox, and Christraper Sings. Using the mediums of sculpture, projection, movement, and sound, each of these artists explores the intimate complexities — including desire, perspective, and queerness — of individual and group identity. Each work of art offers an alternative narrative of a journey each of us takes, alone and together.
In conjunction with the exhibition The Parade: Nathalie Djurberg with Music by Hans Berg, YBCA presents A Mad Tea Party: Five Videos by Nathalie Djurberg & Hans Berg, a selection of important works where complex and twisted narratives are performed by molding clay figures in constructed environments. Spanning the past eight years of the artists’ career, these animations depict their characteristically dark tales that plumb the depths of human psychology to dramatic effect, and include human and animal characters that are thrown together into strange and mythological scenarios laden with sexuality and violence.
William Cordova works in installation, performance, sculpture, film, photography, and drawing. He focuses on architecture and landscapes, and reconstructs, reconsiders, and reconnects past events to reveal their relevancy in today’s social climate. Creating ephemeral monuments, Cordova sees the visual arts as a platform for discussing our common experiences, needs, and struggles.
