"Flashes of Utopia" at EXCHANGE
EXCHANGE features newly commissioned works and performances, and large-scale installations by 8 artists. EXCHANGE explores interstitial zones of transaction and transfer as sites for the transmission of capital, labor, bodies, and energy. Leveraging its vantage point in lower Manhattan, which has long been a locus for exchanges of global ramification, the exhibition traces the percussive impacts that such exchanges as Wall Street, the Atlantic Triangle, and Ellis Island have had and continue to have on individuals, cultures, and the natural and spiritual worlds today.
Brendan Fernandes's "Flashes of Utopia," is a commissioned sculptural installation that emulates a dinner table, catwalk, construction site, and playground, activated through performance and public engagement, examining power dynamics across labor, ballet and bondage.
Each Thursday, EXCHANGE will host performances of Fernandes's work at 7pm.
