RESTLESS INDEX

Restless Index

Restless Index is a group exhibition curated by Kelly Akashi and Cayetano Ferrer at Tanya Bonakdar in Los Angeles. The show explores language as following: Inadequacies of language—whether legal, symbolic, written or visual—are cast into stark relief during moments of social upheaval. Associations once normalized by cultural hegemonies are opened up into sites of contention. Canons, monuments and institutional mandates are called into question, histories reassessed, and so too are visual codes that derive from those histories. Within this condition of restlessness, artists continue to revise, reshape, adapt and recondition existing cultural forms by breaking them down to their structural foundations or rehabilitating semantic objects in states of entropy. Employing a diverse range of media and underlying intentions, the work of the six artists presented in Restless Index represents a vision within a specific bandwidth of this paradigm drawing on language, figures, monuments and architecture.
