Would You Bury Me ?

Curator: Megan K. Quigley

What happens when the demand is declined? What are methods of concealing, withholding, or renegotiating? What does a methodology of sovereignty look like? Convened under the theme of refusal, this project undertakes various vernaculars to jointly participate in an ongoing exercise of declination. To decline conditions, institutions, and infringements, and instead to invite and imagine autonomous futures. To consider gestures, moments, histories, and projects of “no.”

No to being stilled

No as vibration

No as satire

No as dance floors

No as conspiracy

No as fluorescent

No as karaoke

No as conviction

No as happened

No as happening
