FOUR BOXES: POOR and NEEDY
exhibit OPENING 20th October 2017
Krabbensholmen Højskoles gallery, Skive, Denmark
Curated by by Yvette Brackman and Lise Haller Baggesen.

Poor & Needy started as an invitation from the artists, educators and curators Brad Killam and Michelle Grabner, about two years ago, to “do something “ for the 2016 Great Poor Farm Experiment VIII, an art center and event in Manawa in rural Wisconsin. The exhibition and symposium that was Poor and Needy at The Poor Farm now arrives in Denmark as The Poor Connection at Krabbesholm Højskole, an important institution for aspiring artists, writers, and thinkers, situated in the heart of  Jutland. The Poor Connection brings together artists from Scandinavia and the American Midwest,  to strengthen and explore the connections between these two demographics and better understand their shared history and how they relate to the subjects of cooperation, migration, labor and debt.
 
The artist’s colony, because that is what both The Poor Farm and Krabbesholm are, is located somewhere between Utopia and a gated community; questions of exclusivity and inclusivity repeatedly come into play here. But at least, these are open-ended conversations, not the law. In addition to the exhibition we have produced an exhibition catalogue with texts and works from artists and writers that reflect upon the open-mindedness of our local and global communities.

Publication of BAT: Bridging Art + Text

The book presents contemporary artists born or based in the Caribbean, Africa,

Europe and the US creating an insight into aesthetics not often presented in

Scandinavia.

Bridging: We wish to bridge the art works and their historical, political and

personal contexts. These narratives not only influence the works but are also

transformed through their aesthetics.

Art: Photography, installations, sculptures, paintings and stills from

performances and video works.

+: The extract presents works inspired by spirituality, Jamaican dancehall culture,

racial segregation in Cuba and being a woman of Black ancestry and parentage

living in a Nordic culture.

Text: Fiction, poetry, song lyrics, personal narratives, academic accounts and

political discussions.

The texts look into historical accounts of slavery, colonialism, racism and the

transfer of cultural and spiritual knowledge and resistance across the Atlantic. The

politics of Blackness are discussed in texts on Negritude and Pan-Africanism, Black

identity and ethno-aesthetics.

Layout: Built up around the idea of the hidden and revealed foldouts the layout

creates an intimate and tactile relation to the visuals. Generous attention and

detail is given to the art works, as their stories and production envelops the

heart of the book. Size: 290mm (height) x 220mm (width). Pages aprox. 550.
