Explaining 'Art As Is'

An art exhibition whose title begins with the prefix ‘Un-’ begs to be excused from defining what it is--what theme or idea (singular or plural) holds it together. Give it coherence. With that in mind we talk to the curator to discover what was done to put an exhibition that displays works ‘as is’. A simple no-thinking-required curation? But the curator’s words in the press release indicate that the curation wasn’t so thoughtless: “UN_ is then a reflection point, a mirror; a mediator even between the works and the artist, and between the works and the audience.”
