The exhibition title draws upon a term coined by philosopher George Katsiaficas in his book “The Imagination of the New Left: A Global Analysis of 1968,” the concept of the “eros effect” is a means of rescuing the revolutionary value of spontaneity, a way to stimulate a reevaluation of the unconscious and strengthen the will of popular movements to remain steadfast in their revulsion with war, inequality, and domination.
50 years ago in 1968, a surge in societal and personal awareness brought tremendous creativity as well as tumult, leading to sweeping changes both culturally and socially. This exhibition focuses upon how 50 years on, artists working in all media, are addressing aspects of these issues given our world today. The gallery space will become an activated, evocative environment that serves to be both thought-provoking and inspirational. – Jane Hart
