“I’m gonna take my problem to the United Nations.”

Porch Projects’ upcoming exhibition, curated by DC based artist Tim Campbell, brings together the efforts of five artists working in DC, New York, Connecticut, Detroit, and Paris. Many of the works in the exhibition (which range from painting to sculpture to performance documentation) focus on the human body as subject but extend beyond the figure itself to explore themes such as constraint, balance, extension, materiality, environment, and the artificial. The currents of meaning that run between and among these works raise questions about the methods, politics, and problems of bodily representation in our digital age.

Featuring work by:
Strauss Bourque-LaFrance
Chajana denHarder
Sam Ekwurtzel
Sarah Navasse Miller
Christopher Samuels

Curated by:
Tim Campbell

Exhibition open by appointment at other times.
