TORSION

9 December

January 27, 2024

Metro Arts

Sneakers embody the tensions of the contemporary moment, where the immaterial (the brand) surpasses the material (the shoe), and where the seduction of consumerism sits uneasily alongside resistance to capitalism.

Torsion includes new and existing work by local and international artists – the figure of the sneaker acts as a symbol for contemporary capitalism, where even the self is a brand to be cultivated.

The exhibtion is curated by Kyle Weise and includes work by David Attwood, Jessica Curry, Danielle Dean, JD Reforma, Julia Weißenberg and Keemon Williams.
