Have you ever considered the interplay between the body and hospitality? Ever wondered how hospitality might be fleshed out or embodied?

Developed for Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts by 2019-2021 Curator-in-Residence Sylvie Fortin, this ambitious group exhibition brings together the works of 18 contemporary artists to explore corporeal hospitality. Hospitality is usually considered a philosophical concept with juridical implications, an ethical concern, or a social/political practice. This group exhibition shifts the focus to consider the stealth work of hospitality on our conceptual, physical, political, and historical understanding of bodies. In the process, it reveals a storied genealogy that points to the extractive intersection of race, gender, class, religion, and value. I don’t know you like that: The Bodywork of Hospitality excavates this legacy and imagines other more-than-human hospitable modalities.

EXHIBITING ARTISTS

Ingrid Bachmann, Crystal Z Campbell, Jean-Charles de Quillacq, Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Flis Holland, Oliver Husain, Stephanie Dinkins, Celina Eceiza, Adham Faramawy, Mounir Fatmi, Pedro Neves Marques, Rodney McMillian, Bridget Moser, Berenice Olmedo, Kerstin Schroedinger, Jenna Sutela, Ana Torfs, and Francis Upritchard
