The works in this program take a revisionist approach to history and an inquisitive approach to identity, crudely tracing a subjective placement in the universe. Possibility peaks through the fissures of provocative flirtations between “local science” – subject positions, (art) history and cultural theory – and “global magic” – political paradigm shifts, pop culture and widely held beliefs. These works often center around a nucleus of queer subjectivity in that they take political conflict and failed utopias as their starting coordinates. As they spiral outward, Latham Zearfoss’s works ultimately become both referential and forward-looking proposals for more hopeful modes of thinking and living.
