Breaking Water is a group exhibition bringing together works in installation, video, photography, painting, sculpture, and performance that offer a range of approaches to the subject 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, after which the exhibition is titled, alongside new and existing work by an international group of artists whose work 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 and catalogue that extend the exhibition’s central themes.
Breaking Water is co-curated by Amara Antilla, Senior Curator at the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati and Clelia Coussonnet, Guest Curator
