Courtesay WPA

Washington Project for the Arts (WPA) is pleased to present meta-meta by DC/NYC-based artist Misha Ilin (he/him), with an exhibition on view October 14 – November 18 at WPA’s Project Space (2124 8th St. NW).

“How might instructions operate as both language and bureaucratic idiom? How can they be a repository for desire and power, with consequences beyond the symbolic and linguistic?”

meta-meta is an expansive interdisciplinary project, comprising a new book of the artist’s instruction pieces (published by WPA), an exhibition, and a series of public programs and fresh experiments. The project, which was initiated at WPA through a research residency in 2021, engages the history and methodologies of artistic engagement with instruction-based practices (from Fluxus to Artificial Intelligence) to extend Ilin’s ongoing investigation of modes of resistance to authority and control.

The meta-meta Exhibition Opening & Book Launch will take place Saturday, October 14 from 7–9pm at WPA’s Project Space.
