To signal is to convey meaning through a gesture or expression—to communicate directly and artlessly, with the clarity of a traffic light or siren. In the realm of online posting and positioning, however, “signaling” has come to stand for the sharing of generic, fashionable statements, as opposed to genuine convictions, much less complicated opinions. Behind this new, negative definition is the strange expectation that every utterance somehow relay the speaker’s true meaning, or even true identity. But why should signaling be either sincere or performative, reflecting selfhood or groupthink? Why should people always reveal (or even know) what they mean and who they are, rather than expose or conceal themselves based on who is listening and what is at stake? “Signaling” focuses on artists who are scrutinizing the terms through which people address and understand (or evade and misread) one another—and insisting on recognition while refusing identification.
KinoSaito thanks Empty Gallery, Kristina Kite Gallery, François Ghebaly, 56 Henry, Martos Gallery, and Seth Stolbun for supporting “Signaling.”
Opening reception will be held on September 10 as part of KinoSaito’s One Year Anniversery Celebration
