In a point in which globalisation seems maximised, movement and migration seem inevitable, and yet shared borders worldwide are becoming increasingly rigid, thirteen artists, all of whom were born outside North America or continental Europe, present works in which they explore cultural meet. Until February 23, Laura Lima, Alvaro Barrington, Varda Caivano, Nir Evron, Richard Ayodeji Ikhide, Mohamed Namou, Nam June Paik, Seth Price, Hiraki Sawa, Raqib Shaw, Nobuko Tsuchiya, Francis Upritchard and Saya Woolfalk explore this subject throughout painting, sculpture, video and installation.
Most of the artists in ‘No horizon, no edge to liquid’ are products of international movement – born in one place, educated in another, settled somewhere else. Some have chosen to remain in their homelands, whilst their artworks travel across the globe. Their works are manifestations of multiple forms of cultural hybridity, looking at and intertwined with multiple cultures. Cultural hybridity seems both a logical outcome of our cultural moment, and a potential tool for resistance against rising nationalist sentiments.
