This panel considers artists' aesthetic and ethical engagements with the interrelated dynamics of invisibility, inscrutability, and opacity at levels of both content and form. Panelists will present on artists that mobilize such aesthetic registers, but will also explore the theoretical stakes of these modes in dialogue with one another. We will pose questions about the commonalities and nuances of these different artistic stances; query the stakes for artists' deployment of them in various settings; invite inquiry about audience; and ask what it means to think about these tropes collectively—and collectively now.
