About the Exhibition
On view at the ACFNY and Undercurrent through January 7, 2022, “un/mute” is the culmination of two online residencies launched in 2020 to provide European and NYC-based artists an opportunity for critical exchange and collaboration during the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Co-curated by Daina Mattis and Melinda Wang, “un/mute” is the physical manifestation of online conversations among strangers who became collaborators. What began as abstract and digital are now 14 tactile, concrete artworks presented across two locations. The exhibition features sculptures, installations, films, drawings, photographs, and performances created by artists who confronted the parameters imposed by the lockdowns and found creative solutions that we might all learn from.
“un/mute” is a project by Undercurrent and the following members of EUNIC NY - European Union National Institutes for Culture: Austrian Cultural Forum New York, Czech Center New York, Consulate General of Estonia in New York, Delegation of Flanders to the USA, Goethe-Institut New York, Lithuanian Culture Institute, Arts Council Malta in New York, Polish Cultural Institute New York and Romanian Cultural Institute. This project is also supported by EUNIC Global, the European Union Delegation to the United Nations, Hope Recycling Station and Jindřich Chalupecký Society.
Open hours: ACFNY, 10am-6pm daily; Undercurrent, 1-7pm Thursday-Sunday; free admission

About the Artist
Marie Lukáčová is an artist who works primarily in the media of video and video installation; her films transform symbols borrowed from the fields of politics, mythology, geology and science. They move across various time levels and locations, addressing the questions of uncertain future through specific narratives and poetics. She is one of the founders of the Fourth Wave feminist group which initiated a public debate on sexism at universities in 2017. She also works as a teacher at Czech Film Academy.
