DUVE Berlin is pleased to announce *Condensed Matter Community*, a site-specific curatorial project organized by Evan Gruzis and Kristof Wickman. Designed to generate a dialogue about science, aesthetics, progress and entropy, the project will use the Synchrotron Radiation Center’s (SRC) “vault” in Stoughton, Winsconsin as an exhibition space to frame a selection of artworks during a transitional period, prior to forthcoming experiments. The SRC particle accelerator was part of the University of Wisconsin Madison’s Physical Sciences Laboratories. Situated on limestone bedrock in an below-grade vault, this facility was used for high-energy spectroscopic research for 45 years.
With works by Rita Ackermann, Cory Arcangel, Tauba Auerbach, Daniel G. Baird, Alisa Baremboym, Jesse Benson, Jeremy Bolen, Sascha Braunig, Alex Chitty, American Fantasy Classics, Katy Cowan, Paul Druecke, Anna K. E., Assaf Evron, Richard Galling, Aristotle Georgiades & Gail Simpson, Michelle Grabner, Evan Gruzis, Joel Holmberg, Paul Ramirez Jonas, Miles Huston, José Lerma, Kate Levant & Jason Gomez, Roman Liška, Kylie Lockwood, Tony Matelli, Scott Reeder, John Riepenhoff, David Robbins, Ryan Sawyer, Alina Tenser, Daniel Turner, Philip Vanderhyden, Jacques Louis Vidal, and Kristof Wickman
