Inside Is Not The Opposite Of Outside

The next Synthetic Zero show at BronxArtSpace, “Inside is Not the Opposite of Outside” will be co-curated by Emily Roberts-Negron and Mitsu Hadeishi. We are looking for visual art, performance, experimental video, music, readings, dance, or other work for the show. The theme of the show is described below; please feel free to submit any and all work related to the theme closely or remotely.

Define extrovert. Introvert.

These two words have been interpreted and reinterpreted to conform to a general understanding of disposition. But perhaps these varying definitions illustrate a much more complex idea, that they aren’t really in opposition of one another. Perhaps the two exist on their own; individual spectrums which echo one another like the rise and fall of an ocean’s tide.

How does one describe an array of emotion, taking account of every nuance and change? This show will be an exploration of the behavior/idiosyncrasies/characteristics of introversion both as an emotional mode and a space of introspection and creative incubation, not as the polar opposite of extroversion, but overlapping with it, undulating together with it, in waves. We are looking for works across the full gradation of emotion and expression. They can be romantic, pessimistic, hairy, toothsome, frustrated, proud, intellectual, courteous, hungry, lonely, horny, cautious, congenial, meditative… together they will form a collective depiction of this singular paradoxical relation.
