Post Brothers (USA)

Post Brothers

Post Brothers is a critical enterprise that includes Matthew Post, a curator, writer, and artist often working from an elevator in Oakland, California. Post Brothers' practice occupies the fringes of several disciplines, bridging artistic, curatorial, critical, and crackpot academic tendencies so as to question, exaggerate, and deconstruct forms of knowledge construction and circulation. Post Brothers' work was recently featured in the San Francisco Pavilion of the 9th Shanghai Biennial, 2012. Post Brothers has also curated exhibitions and presented lectures and projects in the US, Mexico, Canada, and throughout Europe. Post Brothers' interdisciplinary and critically rigorous exhibitions have sometimes taken on unusual forms such as an American Civil War reenactment drag show, a group exhibition in complete darkness, and a rotating display of objects in a showcase of an antique mall. Post Brothers' essays and articles have been published in "Cura Magazine," "Annual Magazine," "Fillip," "Spike Art Quarterly," "Nero," "ArtSlant," "Kaleidoscope," "Mousse Contemporary Art," "Pazmaker," "Curating Now," "Woo," and "Snowball," as well as numerous artist publications and exhibition catalogues. Post holds a Master of Arts degree in Curatorial Practice from California College of the Arts in San Francisco and a Bachelor of fine Arts from Emily Carr Institute in Vancouver, Canada.
