    In conjunction with In Practice: Total Disbelief, exhibition artists Andrew Cannon, Emilie Louise Gossiaux, Ficus Interfaith, K.R.M. Mooney, Andrea Solstad, and Andrew Norman Wilson gather for a roundtable discussion with Kyle Dancewicz, Director of Exhibitions and Programs and exhibition curator.

    In Practice: Total Disbelief considers artistic engagements with dimensions of doubt as they contribute to the formation of social life. Across media, the works in the exhibition engage formal tools that uphold belief and produce what we consider to be true – narrative and cinematic tropes, photographic technologies, empiricism, and others – and use them to make any number of other truth claims. While characterized on one hand by the clean slate of a baseline lack of faith, an active engagement with disbelief also means taking stock of astonishment, navigating defense mechanisms, and pitting skepticism against a real desire to be convinced and to know. In Practice: Total Disbelief posits that artworks are the products and by-products of these dynamics, appearing as objects, images, and activities that sustain uncertainty.

    This program is free and open to the public. RSVP is required.
