P! and ROOM EAST are pleased to present a summer group show, O / U, organized in collaboration with artist Aaron Gemmill. It is the first time the two galleries have worked together. The exhibition will take place in both venues, from 15 July through 20 August 2016. The show includes 25 artists working in a variety of media, including site-specific pieces.

The show’s title is shorthand for “over-under”—which may refer to the combined score of a gambling or sporting event, a complicated sexual position, or a type of double-barrelled shotgun. In a formal context, over-under suggests overprinting or undercutting. As a maneuver to override or undermine, it has political and strategic connotations. Consider the Übermensch and the underdog. Over-under juxtaposes two prepositions that exist in a dialectic: you cannot have one without the other. Divided between the two galleries, the works on view invoke spatial, hierarchical, and power relations in both overt and understated ways.
