Join DiverseWorks for the inaugural exhibition opening reception at our new home at the MATCH on Thursday, January 14 from 6 – 8 pm. Refreshments courtesy of Saint Arnold Brewing Company and Topo Chico USA.

What Shall We Do Next? is a group exhibition curated by Associate Curator Rachel Cook that examines how technology and advertising have shifted our relationships to our physical bodies, shaping of subjectivity, and notions of the real. The exhibition is comprised of a variety of works across mediums – including drawings, paintings, sculpture, video animations, and performance – that all acknowledge and incorporate the effects of technology, commerce, and advertising. The artists brought together in What Shall We Do Next? — Danielle Dean, Kristin Lucas, Julien Prévieux, and the artist collective Versace Versace Versace (Loriel Beltran, Domingo Castillo, Aramis Gutierrez, and Jonathan Gonzalez) — consider ideas of the real in relation to physical materials, technology, and advertising, as well as how the body can act as both material and ideological subject.
