The exhibition’s title makes oblique reference to the technique of the same name, popularised by the late Houston musician DJ Screw in the early 1990s. The selection of artists included in the show apply similar approaches to medium, form and aesthetic inheritances, each challenging, obscuring, undermining or malforming existing hegemonic conditions and prevailing narratives.
