Locust Projects presents Sunday in the Park, featuring Sarah Crowner in collaboration with Sari Carel, and Exile Books, opening on Saturday, September 13th, in Miami, Florida. From the Locust Project website, “Hung with colorful voile curtains and painted backdrops alluding to park-like landscapes, the installation takes its cues from stage design. While the title refers to a fictional work of theater, Crowner’s work focuses on the material aspects of stagecraft rather than performance itself.”

On view from Saturday, September 13th, until Saturday, October 25th, 2014, is Total Body Conditioning, an exhibition featuring Mika Tajima at Art in General in New York City. The exhibition is composed of three scenes that explore the management of the body in “different spaces and temporal contexts from factory assembly lines to therapeutic ‘after work’ locations”. More from the Art in General website, “Total Body Conditioning refers to the complete investment of the body, taking the Greek practice ‘to care for oneself’ into the Foucauldian register of discipline and control exacted on the self—where individual practices of freedom are intertwined with modes of domination.”
