In Search of the Miraculous, curated by FLAG’s Artistic Director Jonathan Rider, is a group exhibition that explores belief, believability, and the suspension of disbelief in the form of art objects, talismans, multiples, doppelgängers, spiritual(ish) artifacts, and tales of impossibility. The show’s title and concept nods to Dutch conceptual and performance artist Bas Jan Ader’s three-part final performance In Search of the Miraculous (titled after P. D. Ouspensky’s 1949 treatise on eastern philosophy of the same name) during which Ader is presumed to have disappeared while attempting a trans-Atlantic crossing in a tiny sailboat—a leap of faith for both the artist and those who believe his story. Artists include: Sarah Cain, Vija Celmins, Susan Collis, Jason Dodge, Jimmie Durham, Ceal Floyer, Harry Gould Harvey IV, Hugh Hayden, Jeppe Hein, Jim Hodges, Yves Klein, Chris Oh, Paul Pfeiffer, Naudline Pierre, Dario Robleto, Betye Saar, Jeffrey Vallance, Melvin Way, and others
