Seeing Believing Having Holding brings together five American artists living across the United States: Kelly Akashi (Los Angeles, CA) Kahlil Robert Irving (St. Louis, MO), Michelle Lopez (Philadelphia, PA), B. Ingrid Olson (Chicago, IL), and Daniel Rios Rodriguez (San Antonio, TX). Each artist makes tactile, composite objects and images, generating conditions of doubt, pleasure, and a kind of skepticism in the face of physical fact. Expressive of varied subjectivities, together their works play our most stabilizing senses against each other. Provoking unsettling relationships between touch and vision, they register deeply felt bodily experiences colored by the United States’ precarious and destabilizing cultural moment.
