SUPERCOLLIDER presents EXTRACTION: Earth, Ashes, Dust, an exhibition exploring themes of extraction. The works in this exhibition examine the overarching power structures that dictate methods of extraction as they relate to cultural, natural, and ecological capital. Artists challenge notions of the map, explore both healed and broken landscapes, and embody methods of extraction and generation. Using a range of media, the works excavate systems that disrupt the autonomy of bodies (human and more-than-human), and also consider the historical implications of extractive practices across industries and geographies.

Participating Artists: Kim Abeles, Matthew Brandt, Treva Ellison, Zane Griffin Talley Cooper, Katie Gressitt-Diaz, Beatriz Jaramillo, Sarah E. Jenkins, Noa Kaplan, Romi Ron Morrison, Ignacio Perez Meruane, Elena Soterakis, and Julie Weitz. Curated by Isabel Beavers + Sharon Levy.
