Between 1975 and 1979, the North American artist Christopher D'Arcangelo (1955-1979) developed an artistic practice that was notable for its radicality and critical import concerning the role of the artist, the status of the art object and the institutionalization of art. A desire for a radical democratization of the production and reception of art motivated D'Arcangelo's institutional critique, which he voiced in a statement on anarchism. Recalling the historical expression “anarchism without adjectives,” the statement, which accompanied in various forms the majority of his actions and interventions, contains an ellipsis between brackets in the place of an adjectival descriptor of the noun anarchism.

Testifying to an artist engaged in a critique of the social conditions and repercussions of art, and whose work is accessible solely in the form of an archive, represents a challenge to both contemporary art history and curatorial practice. It is this challenge, along with the paradoxes and critical complexities D'Arcangelo's work and legacy raise, that the exhibition considers and analyzes.
