Syndicate at NADA
a joint presentation with Et Al. in San Francisco and Vilnius
hosted by Autarkia
1 – 5 December 2020
The presentation consists of two exhibitions in both San Francisco, USA (at Et Al, Chinatown) and Vilnius, Lithuania (at Syndicate’s new space, hosted by Autarkia).
Building on the past collaborations between the galleries, the latest takes place in the context of a dislocated NADA Miami. A sharp contrast to the hub of activity hosted by the sea each winter, the participants are instead separated by thousands of miles, and seeing each portion live is impossible.
New sculptures by Cole Lu reframe the gap through the founding mythologies of interstellar travel, and Bri Williams’ works turn simultaneously inward half a world apart.
Cole Lu is an artist and writer originally from Taipei and based in New York. He previously collaborated with Syndicate for FAIR by NADA 2020; The Third Lie for Poppositions Brussels 2019, The Patio at Arcade Gallery, London; and a performance at NADA New York 2017. Upcoming projects include Autoitalia, London; Nir Altman, Munich; and Autarkia, Vilnius.
Bri Williams is an artist who works primarily in sculpture. Solo exhibitions include Murmurs, Los Angeles; Queer Thoughts, New York, and Interface, Oakland. Williams’ work has been presented in group exhibitions at Ochi Projects, Karma International, and Ramiken Crucible (all Los Angeles). Williams will have a solo show at Et al. in San Francisco in 2021.
