This event has ended.

The International Studio & Curatorial Program presents Ether Plane~Material Plane, an exhibition by Jennifer Tee, a 2012 ISCP alumna. The artist’s first solo exhibition on this continent, Ether Plane~Material Plane responds to current political upheaval and ensuing resistance, utilizing materials laden with cultural meaning and symbolism.

Tee’s exhibition incorporates sculpture, performance, installation and choreography into an immersive and interdependent environment. The centerpiece of Ether Plane~Material Plane is two newly commissioned display structures, designed to present the artist’s series of photographs that unite abstraction with the uncanny, alongside her ceramic ‘resist’ sculptures in the shape of spheres and swirls. Hand-knitted floor pieces that are crystalline in form with overlaid ceramics will intersect the space, while acting as sites for performative events.

A stack of books is the kernel of the exhibition’s second installation. A Revolt chair designed by Friso Kramer will hold numerous books of fiction, memoir and poetry—published since 1850— that consider personal and social change from the position of resistance. Gathered by the artist in collaboration with poet Jane Lewty, a live reading in six languages of texts collaged from the collection of books will activate the opening reception.

Jennifer Tee: Ether Plane~Material Plane is curated by Kari Conte, Director of Programs and Exhibitions.
