Building on her exhibition at The Kitchen this summer, Xaviera Simmons continues the CODED project with a new movement-based performance that mines art-historical, online, and archival images—as they relate to queer history, homoerotic imagery, and landscape, as well as Jamaican dancehall culture—to map new conceptual territory. Her dynamic, interdisciplinary approach to art-making is rooted in an ongoing investigation of experience, memory, and present and future histories, specifically focusing on shifting notions surrounding landscape and character, as well as conversations between formal processes. Simmons’ particular vocabulary of movement, text, sound, and image offers ways of looking at mapping, pleasure, and sensuality in a queer context and in an island context. Organized by Matthew Lyons. December 8–9, 8pm Tickets $15 Critical praise for the exhibition portion of CODED, which was on view from June 22 to July 29, 2016, can now be read online in Artforum, Art in America, The New York Times, The New Yorker, and The Village Voice.
