Accompaniment explores accompaniment as an evolving theory of practice, developed in response to our contemporary cultural and political milieu. The project asks, might an artistic practice characterized by distributed authorship be a catalyst for a methodological shift in the ways we produce, exhibit, and write about art? This exhibition enacts accompaniment such that the physical, historical, and social supports within individual practices are made manifest, but also so that each participant and contribution inevitably accompanies and is accompanied in the present within the group. This model subverts the order of the soloist, laying bare a deeply stratified ground in which everything created is inscribed and contingent.
