The exhibition takes its title from a phrase originating in the 1800s as an expression of shock or surprise, perhaps indicating that men at sea had found a shipwreck survivor. The artists in Man Alive are drawn together not only by the politics inherent in their work, or activism in their personal life, but also by the stand-alone impact of what they choose to make. They refuse to settle, refuse to be quiet, refuse to make nice. 

 

Man Alive will be accompanied by a hardcover catalog with an essay by Wendy White.
