Yesterday, sugar’s cultivation as an anthropogenic crop spurred the production of plantation-based economies, eschewing pre-existing biodiversity, violently disregarding Indigenous sovereignty, and torturing the enslaved African descended body. Today, the commodity continues to line the fields of southeast Louisiana, alongside petrochemical and oil refineries, serving as a metaphor, a symbol for disaster capitalism.  By examining the subtle and direct connections of sugar as a global catalyst, a colonizing agent, and a sweet danger, the artists shed light on how humans interact with sugar as an idea, a substance, a haunted past, a pleasure, a metaphor of privilege, a destructive force, a source of abundance and addiction, and a memory.  This exhibition motivates us to examine the internal and external ramifications of the human desire for more.  We invite you to time travel with us as you drink in Sugar.
