A series of handmade hooks line a gallery wall, marking out spaces available for occupancy. Hooks provide a site for the organization and accumulation of personal possessions in a transitional space between familiar interior space and the unknown exterior. Simultaneously, they offer up costumes and props for the navigation of images, roles, and identities. The artworks in inside voices replicate and/or resist the staging of identity to negotiate the multiple characters and politics of their artist-authors. The exhibition considers acts of inhabitation, borrowing, and trespassing that locate the artwork as a facilitator of exchange, able to divert the viewer or collector into relationship with the political and social identities of the artist. Here, artworks transgress this function in their strategic ambiguities or their direct provocations of neat identity.

Including artworks by Donna Dennis, Mona Hatoum, Mark Leckey, William Pope.L, Analia Saban, Haim Steinbach, A.L. Steiner, Rosemarie Trockel, and Andrea Zittel.
