exhaust is a multi-sited exhibition that begins from an impossible position: how to work, survive and thrive on a planet in crisis. Taking its cue from the activities of historical avant-gardes such as Surrealism and Fluxus - that faced great social and political upheaval in their times - to place the work of art into a broader historical, geographical and philosophical context. exhaust is not so much an exhibition, a fixed and singular event, as a trace.

Following the transmission of cultural information and artworks made by 13 international artists across various modes of art distribution from 1) the singular space of the gallery, to 2) a limited edition of prints and multiples that will function as a boîte-en-valise, or traveling exhibition to 3) related projects made for the seemingly infinite expanses of the web, the project aims to trouble common assumptions about art and its contexts on a dying planet.
