By Design

By Design brings together the work of three artists working across sculpture and video, who call attention to the ways in which aesthetic preference, contemporary design, and taste are inextricable from histories of oppression and methods of control. In the works on view, shape, color, and texture are revealed as the sinister attendants of hegemonic culture. The aesthetics of our built environment do not simply order the movement of our bodies but also the structure of our thoughts, shaping our perceptions of ourselves and others.
