About Anti-Establishment:
The works in Anti-Establishment constitute artistic practices that, in various ways, radically utilize and recommit to the notion of "the institution," while nevertheless demanding of it new functions and effects. If institutions are very often conflated with the "establishment"monolithic, static, and hierarchical societal and artistic systems against which avant-garde and countercultural productions can be seenthis exhibition sets the two apart, arguing for institutions as more limber sites, perpetually de- and re-constructed by the people who create, inhabit, and dismantle them. Here, the very definition of the institution is placed in brackets, and reconsidered in terms of its current limits and future possibilities.

What models of art-making are available to artists today wishing to generate alternatives and oppositions to conditions as they are? And how might such artistic models function, if they buck against or retool features of what we've come to designate "institutional critique"? Anti-Establishment aims to highlight potential answers to these questions by looking to artists who do not seek to move beyond or outside institutions so much as to integrate themselves deftly into these spheres, mobilizing different organizational frameworks. Ranging from meditations on medium specificity ("institutions" of painting, sculpture, film, and dance, for instance) to modes of production and exchange (collective, corporate, immaterial) and reimagining how we inherit the past (as lateral legacies, non-oedipal fantasies, networked opposition), these artists conceive anew the very foundations on which any institution might rest. Their works envision novel collective relationships and emergent models of engaged citizenship whereby power is not dispensed with but instead re-routed to other ends.

Anti-Establishment is a group exhibition curated by Johanna Burton, CCS Bard Graduate Program Director, featuring the work of Wynne Greenwood, Trajal Harrell, H.E.N.S. (Arlen Austin & Jason Boughton), Jacqueline Humphries, Brennan Gerard & Ryan Kelly, Chelsea Knight, Pam Lins, Scott Lyall, Tere O'Connor, Mai-Thu Perret, Sarah Pierce, Elisabeth Subrin, and YES! Association.

Anti-Establishment, which will be on view through December 21, 2012 in the CCS Bard Galleries, is one of the featured exhibitions taking place during the Center's 20th Anniversary year. An opening reception will take place on June 23, 2012 from 1:00 -5:00pm.

Also as part of the Center's 20th Anniversary weekend is Why New Forms? A two day curatorial conference.
