Self-Organize / Auto-Organizar looks at work that challenges and reimagines boundaries of identity: the physical, the emotional, the geographical. It asks us to reflect on how, what, and why we are taking matters into our own hands. Self-organizing gives a platform to artists who have come together to mobilize, respond and expose, to heal, and rebuild. They are organizing efforts to address the needs of their community when the system, the government, and aid fall short.
These artists investigate the construction and destruction of identity, of the self, of what constitutes being and its complexities through the use of their body, installations, books, interviews, flower arrangements, videos, and paintings.
