About the Exhibition:
Breaking Water is a group exhibition of installation, video, photography, painting, sculpture, and performance that offers a range of approaches to the subjects of water, liquidity, and feminism. The exhibition will debut four new commissions by Paul Maheke, Josèfa Ntjam, Claudia Peña Salinas, and a collaborative work by Calista Lyon and Carmen Winant alongside new and existing work by an international group of artists.
The work in Breaking Water explores themes of fluidity, connectivity, and resistance, and addresses timely concerns including water rights, climate change, and the effects of natural disasters. The exhibition will be accompanied by a parallel film screening program that extends the exhibition’s central themes.
Breaking Water is co-curated by CAC Senior Curator Amara Antilla and independent curator and writer Clelia Coussonnet, with CAC Assistant Curator Stephanie Kang.
