“Common Love, Aesthetics of Becoming”
Wallach Art Gallery, Columbia University, New York City
Curated by A.E. Benenson, Kristen Chappa, Donald Johnson-Montenegro, and Tomoko Kanamitsu
April 27 – June 11, 2011
Common Love, Aesthetics of Becoming draws its inspiration from Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri’s 2009 book Commonwealth. In this work, the authors propose that the common infuses all spheres of life. They refer not only to earth’s air, water, plant and animal life, but also to the factors that make up human society: from languages and habits, to affects and codes.
