CODE 52 – Issue 01
As we shift in and out of a fold in time on a global and local scale, we reflect upon community importance. To stay as a whole - we must look inwards and form external connections. CODE52 01 is titled A Fold In Time Here and Elsewhere as it refers to the state of consciousness during this time of uncertainty.
Together, we have become more aware of our surroundings and personal relationships. In fact, these relationships are not defined by existing structures of the institutional art world, nor by an online algorithm. From Xiaopeng Yuan's documentation of nature photography culture amongst seniors in Shanghai, to artist Tomás Díaz Cedeño in Mexico City whose moderately humanized objects are at once landscape, body, nature, and culture, CODE52 01 explores a range of artists traverse a category-defying and diverse landscape of contemporary art, music, and culture.
