    74 million million million tons is an exhibition about the types of evidence that artists produce. Employing different methodologies to investigate, intervene, and assemble, these artists reveal subjects on the threshold of politics and the outskirts of legality: the robot, the refugee, the environment, the startup, and others. While their subject matter is divergent, the exhibition's artists push against narratives put forth by corporate and government industries by producing specific, usable knowledge and corroborative objects around unmapped historical and political events. Directly intervening in the moments before such events coalesce into widely accepted narratives, they anticipate and shape understanding of a variety of human (and non-human) subjectivities by documenting and articulating instances of what is not yet widely known or recognized.

    74 million million million tons is curated by Ruba Katrib and Lawrence Abu Hamdan.
