Curated by Amy Kahng, this exhibition examines a variety of communication issues such as the global predominance of English; the colonial violence of European languages in the global south; and the societal tendency to censure other languages, dialects and linguistic practices. Participating artists consider spoken and written language as defined by national or cultural linguistic traditions like Korean, Spanish, and Portuguese; indigenous languages like Bété, Cherokee, and Marra; as well as non-verbal and non-standard communication like American Sign Language, performative body language, “academic speak,” and Artificial Intelligence voice recognition programs.
Mis/Communication is a winner of the 2020 SUNY Prize for Performance, Creation and Curation (PACC). The exhibition originated at the Paul W. Zuccaire Gallery, Stony Brook University, and is supported by a SUNY-PACC grant from the State University of New York. Kahng is a Stony Brook University PhD student in Art History and Criticism.
