'Old Sun, New Sun', Group Show Curated by Andrew Sung Taek Ingersoll at Et al., San Francisco

The sun exists within a funny contradiction of our perception. It takes around 8 minutes for the sun’s light to reach the earth. So what we experience is an embodiment of the past and what we understand, the sun as an object, exists somewhere in our future, yet to be perceived, guiding our path forward with its gravitational pull. Our future largely depends on our relationship to the past just as life depends on the sun. We use the sun as a measure of time, and time is a measure of change, and change is our only constant. So how might we shape change and what does tomorrow hold? 

Old Sun, New Sun
brings forth a group of artists for their ability to see the physical world around us in new light. Each artists employs an Inventive approach to uncover the buried potential and embedded histories of our material reality. 

The exhibition title Old Sun, New Sun derives inspiration from an epigram in the drafts of Octavia Butler’s unfinished sequel Parable of the Trickster. A small ripple in the extant reverberations of the late artists’ work, distorting and disrupting a reflection of the reality we’ve come to know. 

There is nothing

new under the sun,

but there are new suns. 

— Octavia E. Butler
