Program Description

Examining the evolving nature of language, its shortcomings, and its relationship to design as communicative practice, artist/designer Keetra Dean Dixon relocates to MAD this summer for the design residency INCONGROUS. Taking writings of critical theorists, including Barthes, Baudrillard, and Derrida, as points of departure, Dixon creates a series of open participatory studies and experimental installations over three months.

By both considering and altering their context, Dixon’s studies and installations use the edifice of the museum to reveal the role of larger structures in shaping language and our world. In so doing, Dixon delves into the new territories that exist where communication and participation break down and the universe of radical uncertainty begins.
