Description - Nikita Gale: END OF SUBJECT by Andrea Fraser

Immersing the audience in sound and light Nikita Gale's END OF SUBJECT subverts understandings of viewership by prompting spectators to question their subjecthood within 52 Walker's site-specific installation. Creating an aurally and visually rich environment, Gale engages with the architecture of the surrounding space, stimulating all senses through site-specific installation and muses on the boundaries of performance art. Considering and fracturing the physical space of the installation, the artist employs abolitionist ideology and institutional critique to simultaneously rupture and rebuild facets of the art institution.

With an introduction by Ebony L. Haynes and a suite of poems by Harmony Holiday, this publication considers Gale's multidisciplinary approach to address historical hierarchies of visibility. A text by the esteemed artist Andrea Fraser offers reflections on the various interventions at play during a gathering held in the exhibition.
