The Tyranny of White Teeth is a collaborative project between artist duo TARWUK (Bruno Pogacnik Wukodrakula and Ivana Vuksic), Hannah Buonaguro, and Ryan Foerster, artists whose separate multidisciplinary practices are characterized by transgressive tendencies toward various mediums. The artists react to their immediate environment and resources, creating a site-specific installation at the museum. Combining drawing, sculpture, photography, and text, they challenge the idea of individual authorship and conventional visual vocabularies. An artist book will be published in the fall as a part of the project, documenting the process and the final work.
