A Dark Rock Surged Upon, as spectacle, and as an exhibition of works of art installed, projected, and performed throughout GARNER Art Center’s remarkable decommissioned factory spaces, offers no answers; they are responses to contexts that feel jarringly new, cleaved by difference and dissembling. Instead, the works manifest the duty to pose questions about the current moment pressed upon many by racialized and gendered discrimination, our environmental challenges, urban decay and rural devastation, the wholesale assault on political credence, weaponization of worship, and the colonization of speech and mind. A Dark Rock Surged Upon is composed of sculptural, performance, video, photographic, and installation works by Thomas Albrecht, Michael Asbill, Sadee Brathwaite, Stephen Derrickson, Francois Deschamps, Laura Kaufman, Noah Fischer, Matthew Friday, Matt Frieburghaus, Peter Iannarelli, Tlisza Jaurique, Todd Martin, Linda Montano, Emily Puthoff, Rena Leinberger, Ryan Roa, Steve Rossi, Heather Renee Russ, Sigrid Sarda, Zachary Skinner, Tiffany Smith, Molly Stinchfield, Derek Stroup, Anthony Tino, Chris Victor, and Marcus Zilliox.
