Everything is Index, Nothing is History

Recession Art is now accepting submissions of artwork in all media for our next exhibition, to be held at the Invisible Dog in Brooklyn from June 2 – 17, 2012. Curated by Melanie Kress, Everything is Index is an exhibition about writing and interpreting history, specifically contrasting histories written through language with histories inscribed on the physical world. An “index” may be a footprint, a scar, a photograph—a document pointing to a moment in time. Everything is Index is an exhibition about how we experience the world as an accumulation of physical traces. Of special interest are works that engage in alternative modes of writing, framing, and interpreting history. And question how we determine truth and veracity. Works may address topics such as archive, information systems, story telling, the natural sciences, and photography.

The deadline for submissions is March 2. Artists will be notified of acceptance by April 6. Visit http://recessionartshows.com/submit to read the complete show description and terms and to access the Submission Form or email info@recessionartshows.com with questions.
