For the 2020 Member Exhibition, Juror Ruby T has selected artworks that have a powerful physical presence: works that feel like a form of shelter, or are an extension or impression of the artist’s own body. During the pandemic, and mass movements for revolution, this exhibition asks: What kinds of physical and relational structures will we need, or need to build, in order to survive? How will the warmth and softness of our bodies guide us?

Join a selection of the artists whose artwork is featured in Shelter In The Speculative: New Works by Spudnik Press Members for a virtual tour of the exhibition, brief artist talks and a conversation with guest juror, Ruby T

Zoom Meeting ID: 966 4803 1564
