RH Gallery is pleased to present Collapse, curated by gallery artist Micah Ganske and featuring Diana Al-Hadid, Ian Davis, Maria Kozak, Colette Robbins, Erick Swenson, Maximilian Toth and Heeseop Yoon. Collapse draws inspiration from Jared Diamond’s book, Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed. In this text, Diamond hypothesizes the triggers and trajectories leading to the fall of a civilization and concludes that the true cause of social collapse relies on a failure to adapt. Diamond states, “Societies die from suicide, not by murder.” Although somewhat bleak, this view offers a beacon of hope: every individual has the ability to change. Ganske’s exhibition seeks to reveal the symptoms of collapse while simultaneously envisioning possible alternatives. Collapse showcases a group of contemporary artists whose work reflect Diamond’s paradigm.
