The 2021 edition of GESTE Paris, Future Conditional, curated by Shiva Lynn Burgos and Georg Bak defines the theme according to its relationship to Art, Language and Philosophy.
A collective artistic reaction to what lies ahead is both cathartic and prophetic in its reflection. “The fulfillment of the only future we can imagine, whether utopian or apocalyptic, is, on some deep level, satisfying.”
Creative practices of future-conditional knowledge-making unavoidably draw on dominant imaginaries of socio-technical and environmental futures, hypotheticals. Questions of uncertainty, invisibility and post-photographic prototyping arise.
This 5th edition of GESTE Paris will include both a physical and online exhibition including experimental, photographic and digital works and sound installation with a section of pioneering NFTs. Held in the intimate setting of a private classical Parisian home, GESTE is the nexus of a private collection, works from prestigious galleries and a selection from guest curators.
Artists : darktaxa-project, Ania Freindorf, Andy Goldsworthy, Anthony Haden-Guest + Christo, Rafael Y. Herman, Frank Horvat, Joseph Kosuth, Amélie Labourdette, Janet Levy, The Mariwai Project, Alexane Morin, Warren Neidich, Antoine Ribaut, Tim Rollins + K.O.S, Wolfgang Staehle, Michael Wesely.
Please note that as this is a private home RSVPs are required. Covid protocols in place.
