YOUR LAND, MY LAND: ELECTION '12
This exhibition reconfigures a project by Jonathan Horowitz originally titled November 4, 2008 and presented at Gavin Brown’s enterprise in New York during the previous American Presidential election. It was a montage of sculpture, photographs, and video that organized the gallery space into red and blue zones to reflect the American color-coding of its bipartisan political system. Central to the entire exhibition was the actual space of the gallery, a room that the artist subdivided into contrasting sections that also functioned as a comfortable place from which to view two centrally suspended televisions — back to back — one broadcasting programming on Fox News and the other programming on CNN. The exhibition — which will be presented simultaneously at other institutions in the United States (Contemporary Art Museum Raleigh; Hammer Museum; Contemporary Arts Museum Houston;Utah Museum of Contemporary Art; Telfair Museums; and New Museum.) — will transform CAM’s lobby into a space for collective reflection on the election process, for shared social experience, and for dialogue and exchange.
