exceptional/respectable is a solo exhibition of new work by Arts + Public Life and Center for the Study of Race, Politics & Culture artist-in-residence James T. Green.
The internet is the equalizer. Conversations by news sources conflict with bystanders on site with a camera. Online technologies are used to document and honor fallen members of communities. A widely shared image becomes the memorial. Memories are off-loaded to digital devices. Honor is served with virtual acts of protest. Life is dedicated to pondering the actions and reactions of others. Minds are filled with input; the body desires an output.
In exceptional/respectable, conceptual artist Green’s work becomes his visceral output towards the barrage of the 24-hour news cycle, respectability politics, and the conflict between contemplation and action.
