Suplex Projects and BLUEorange Gallery are pleased to present Public Communication: Performing Knowledge of the Body, an exhibition of seven contemporary artists working in different regions of the world. Through live performance, photography, and video, the featured artists communicate an array of current issues that limit and confine the body. Each artist uses a body or their body to publicly exceed limitations and confinements inherent in culture, politics, or society at large. Public Communication culls together unique methodologies ranging from post-traumatic stress disorder therapy to re-performing a historical movie scene that took place in the Munich Zoo. The highly psychological performances survey a movement within contemporary art, where current oppressions are exhausted to locate knowledge of the body. The artists participating in the exhibition include: Jessica Borusky, Melanie Gilligan, Sarah Hill, Katherine Hubbard + MPA, Autumn Knight, and Katharina Swoboda. Public Communication is co-curated by Max Fields and Joe Joe Orangias.
