Spillover is a collection of eleven curatorial projects that, together, create a sequence of distinct but converging artistic encounters. Rather than coalescing around a common theme, our projects connect through their leaking points: our shared commitment to experimental art forms, ephemeral materials, and affective atmospheres.
A spillover is an overflow, an indication of excess, something that spreads, often uncontrollably. Although these exhibitions emerge from disparate research interests and perspectives, they build upon a series of collective debates and conversations. As such, they cannot help but bleed outward, carrying with them the ideas that have acted upon us over the past two years.
Bigger than Sound and A song within a song within a song explore the communities that form around musical genres, attuned not simply to sound but how that sound is listened to. In A Subtle Remainder, Carboniferous Love, and Glot, artists seek barely perceptible traces left by atmospheric cycles, geological formation, and speech, respectively.
The intertwined operations of memory and displacement are considered in GAST, Weight of Mind, and I’m not alien, I’m discontent. Here, shared and personal memories settle in the natural landscape, act upon the human form, or coalesce in domestic spaces.
Your Presence Is a Present, NARNIA IS A LIE, and Biomes center intimate and open-ended collaborations between artist and curator, in which authorship is inescapably multiple and through which new artistic methods emerge.
The collected exhibitions skirt around contemporary or historical conditions and yet are deeply saturated with them. Rather than coalescing around a common theme, these unique curatorial projects connect through their leaking points.
Exhibitions organized by the graduate students of the Class of 2024: Josefina Barcia, Daré Dada, Lucas Ondak, Clara Prat-Gay, Sophie Rose, Aïda Sidhoum, Thalia Stefaniuk, Pallavi Surana, Lili Rebeka Toth, Clara von Turkovich, and Luke Whittaker. In memory of Elisabeth Vollert.
