The Sloppy Show

A Group Exhibition curated by Loraine Wible

The Art Academy of Cincinnati presents The Sloppy Show, a collection of works exploring sloppiness. Sloppy works usually imply imprecision, dirtiness, even possibly a lack of care. What if instead it was seen as a resistance to the expectations of our Western patriarchal capitalism that has fed its value system with ideas of excellence, rigor, order, and exactitude? These ideals unfortunately sometimes reduce the complexities of truths by smoothing the lines and flattening the shapes in order to demonstrate, almost mathematically, the certitudes to which this system clings. The Sloppy Show focuses instead on ideals of blurred edges, wonky structures, slightly off-balance compositions, or contradictory statements, inviting the visitor to reflect on the truths that imprecision can reveal. Curated by AAC Assistant Professor Loraine Wible, this exhibition will present works from seven local and national artists who work in a wide range of media, including installation, video, performance, and sculpture.

Please join us for a public reception on Friday, November 8th, from 5—8pm.
