Summer Camp: À Rebours
July 29 - September 2

Inspired in equal parts by Joris-Karl Huysmans’ 1884 guidebook to decadence, Against Nature, and Susan Sontag’s seminal Notes on Camp (1964), this group exhibition explores the play between artifice, transgression and transcendence within the camp sensibility in a contemporary domestic setting. These artists embrace an anti-naturalist jouissance expressed through formal, conceptual and performative gestures that serve as effervescent meditations on our mortality, taking the highest pleasure in material freedom, in defiance of essentialism and purist form.
