Opening reception: Friday, June 28, 5-8pm

Gerald Peters Contemporary is pleased to present, VOID_STRATA, an exhibition of new and recent works by multidisciplinary artist, X.
Harnessing materiality, chromatics, and technology, the exhibition metamorphoses reimagined television test patterns into conduits of collective retrospection and Indigenous prophecy. Each creation, a mosaic of temporal and spatial layers, folding material, time and space into a multidimensional tableau. Through this dynamic striation, it reframes perceptions, urging audiences to ponder the intricacies of history and envision alternative futures. Through these interventions, X crafts a counter-narrative to the geological record, serving as an ultra-historical affirmation of the enduring presence of Indigenous making, while painting the absence.
X (CHamoru / Koasati) is an Indigenous futurist, multidisciplinary artist and architect specializing in land, architectural, and new media installation. His work illuminates the liminal space between the ancestral plane and our accelerating post-human world.
X is a 3Arts Award Winner, a 2020 New City Top 50 Artist and the first Native American contributor to the Chicago Architecture Biennial. His work is exhibited and collected internationally including the Museum of Contemporary Native Art, Ars Electronica, and the MCA Chicago. In 2020, X was commissioned by the U.S. State Department as lead artist of The American Arts Incubator Brazil, where he traveled to Brazil and conducted workshops culminating in a virtual reality exhibition, entitled PORTAL.
X, received a Bachelors of Environmental Design from the University of Colorado, a Masters of Architecture from the University of Southern California, and a Masters of Fine Arts Studio in Art and Technology from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He is an enrolled citizen of the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana (Koasati) and Indigenous CHamoru from the Island of Guam (Hacha’Maori).
