0 Ungluers have Faved this Work

Orchestrating text and color photography through the lens of vulnerability, Viscous Expectations explores embodied democracy as the intersection of technology, aesthetics, eroticism, and ethnicity. Cara Judea Alhadeff integrates the personal and theoretical with the visual and textual, she mobilizes a comprehensive exploration of our bodies as contingent modes of relation. She cites philosophers and artists from Spinoza to Audre Lorde, Louise Bourgeois, and Édouard Glissant, who have explored collaborative and uncanny conditions of becoming vulnerable. In the context of multiple constituencies, creativity becomes a political imperative in which cognitive and somatic risk-taking gives voice to social justice.
