Black Cube

Personal Structures Exhibition GAA Foundation

Black Cube presented two bodies of work by American artists Laura Shill and Joel Swanson, both based in Colorado. The exhibition is curated by Black Cube Executive Director + Chief Curator, Cortney Lane Stell. Shill and Swanson’s installations consider the complexities of binary structures in gender and language, exploring the spaces in-between. The dichotomies presented in these works reference the age-old pattern of how humans perceive the world through contrast – good and evil, male and female, day and night – and go beyond the polarity of opposites by exploring the in-between spaces of gender norms and language.
