“THE DISPLACED PERSON”Ron Athey, Walt Cassidy, Jesse Aron Green, Geof Oppenheimer, Sue WIlliamsINVISIBLE-EXPORTS, 14A Orchard St., NYC"Public space is palimpsest, an accidental archive of imperious elements and refugee cultures, competing claims, misfits, dissidents, legacies and outcasts, all cast together and called, simultaneously, forward. But what goes by the name of renewal, in city life and politics, in arts and culture, is often just a flattening, a sorting, sometimes even an obliteration. The work gathered here, by five artists exploring the libidinous zone between public and intimate, sanctioned and condemned, suggests instead that displacement, exclusion, and alienation, as much as they are symptoms of social failure, can return as civic virtues. In fact, they must."
