About

Conceptualized and produced as an analogue of the exhibition of the same title, Traces in the Dark is a collection of essays and artist folios that nest inside each other. The artist folios are: Imaginary Archive by Gregory Sholette and Olga Kopenkina; “Hunting the Nigs” in Philadelphia: or an alternative chronology of events leading up to and one year beyond the Columbia Avenue Uprisings, August 28-30, 1964. by Deanna Bowen; and We were the mist, the smoke curtain, that hid everything by Harold Mendez. A curatorial essay by Liz Park and a new text by Sholette, “Heart of Darkness: 1956, 2015, 2065,” contextualize the artist folios.
