Passe-partout (Quebec) by Claire Fontaine on Enclosures 02, 2014
Getting Rid of Ourselves presents artists and artistic collaborations whose work in different ways obscures, delegates, withdraws or complicates the conventional signs of authorship and artistic subjectivity. Works in the exhibition question the link between art and self-expression through tactics of anonymity, shared authorship, appropriated identities, delegated production, and financial speculation. Highlighting how subjectivity is treated as a form of living currency to exploit, market and sell to, the exhibition explores the diffusion and distribution of artistic agency and intellectual property.
