<> TRANSACTION <>
SPRING/BREAK Art Show's 2015 theme, TRANSACTION, explores visions of and commentaries on exchange in all its forms. Bodies in their exchange of gesture. Education in its exchange of ideas. Commodity in its exchange of objects.
What are the ebbs and tides of this cultural AC/DC? When is it absent? In what conditions does it thrive? Movements, art-historical, in their exchange of improvements and critiques, are a palimpsest of the theoretical—in eternal exchange back-and-forth. What social contracts lie in the everyday, present or invisible? What technologies build hurdle or hoist? And what forms speak to these implicit and underlying transactions: monetary, emotional, military, familial, gender-specific, aesthetic?
