Curated by Anthony Huberman at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, the group exhibition and catalogue For the Blind Man in the Dark Room Looking for the Black Cat That Isn’t There explores the speculative nature of knowledge and insists on the importance of curiosity and the things we don’t understand. Arranged around the premise that the world—and art—is not a code that needs cracking, the works in the exhibition center on the fruitfulness of not-knowing, un-learning, and productive confusion. David Hullfish Bailey, Marcel Broodthaers, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Fischli & Weiss, Rachel Harrison, Giorgio Morandi, Matt Mullican, Rosalind Nashashibi & Lucy Skaer, Frances Stark, Rosemarie Trockel and others present explanations that playfully don’t explain. Dedicated to the inquisitive mind, For The Blind Man celebrates our ability to get lost and the stories we use to find our way in the dark.
