Produced alongside the political theatre of 2017, Highest Grossing Film: The Sequel approaches issues of capital, entertainment and collapse. Examining pop-culture fantasies of wealth and decay by isolating a section of time that runs from 60’s gameshows to sci-fi visions of the post-apocalypse, the work in this exhibition attempts to stitch a circular micro-narrative out of this linear timeline by drawing those edges together. Resisting total destruction fantasies, the work instead offers an optimistic breakage of power where failures can become useful tools. Work from Lee Webster, Gray Swartzel, KR Pipkin, Shobun Baile, Alex Lukas, Joy Poulard Cruz, Erin Mallea,
