I know this is extremely late, but I had the chance to make it out to Ad Hoc while they were closed to see the show unperturbed. I quite simply love what these two amazing artists have done to this space. I was talking to a friend recently, asking him about how the opening went, and he mentioned how refreshing it was to see such a political show. But despite the strong imagery, I did not feel ideologically repulsed. And while it was tremendously political, it was simultaneously a portrait of struggle, confusion, and daunting oppression. For the most part it made no movement towards clarity or certainty; instead it approached the human capacity of subjugation and horror with the hopeful statement, ” I Know There is Love”
