Entitled I am FOR, the exhibition explores themes of environmental activism, racial taxonomy, and political factionalism. Works on display will include Crown’s ENtitleist, an enlarged, 3D-milled, alabaster golf ball, made imperfect through natural aberrations in 3D scanning and by the material’s irregular and fragile disposition. The foreboding sculpture recalls the act of blackballing, or casting a stone—a negative vote toward someone who moves against a political faction’s agenda—originating from the ancient Greek practice of voting with black and white seashells.
