Matthew Alexander Post (Post Brothers)
Post Brothers is a critical enterprise that includes Matthew Alexander Post—an independent curator and writer working between Białystok, Berlin, Antwerp and Oakland. Post Brothers received an MA in Curatorial Practice from the California College of the Arts, San Francisco (2009); and a BFA from Emily Carr Institute, Vancouver (2006). He has curated exhibitions and presented lectures and projects in Poland, Mexico, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Lithuania, Italy,Greece, Finland, Belgium, The Netherlands, and China, where he contributed a video and an unrealized screenplay in the 9th Shanghai Biennale (2012). He has an ongoing library/publication project, “Memoirs Found in a Bathtub”, at Objectif Exhibitions in Antwerp.
While at Rupert, Post Brothers researched and prepared a lecture/ performance/ video entitled “An Ideal Museum Is All Wet”, that dives into a heterogeneous blend of history, mythology, science, music, pop culture, philosophy, politics, current events, and art in order to salvage a certain “underwater politic” lying deep below the surface, mapping a shift from underground strategies to more liquid and aqueous approaches. Also during his stay at Rupert, Post Brothers worked alongside numerous collaborators and conspirators to curate a solo exhibition of the works of Vilnius-based artist Liudvikas Buklys at CAC in Vilnius.
