THE BODY POLITIC
November 1- December 2
Opening Reception: Thursday, Nov. 1, 7-9PM
Curated by Greer Muldowney
Artists featured: Chase Barnes | Candice Jackson | Silvi Naçi | Brian Ulrich
The Body Politic is a term that defines us as citizen of a whole, but the American identity has ruptured, which is increasingly evident during this election year. These works should be viewed as both political and personal statements of what it means to be an American, and how these identities seem even more in flux with the rights and privileges expected of our citizenry. The artists in this exhibition explore identities that are under scrutiny, under privileged or under attach in the United States.
As you view this exhibition in the context of the midterm elections, consider the following: Is it possible for our identity, or the defining power of individual groups, to be transmuted overnight? Can the election change your interpretive stance after results are determined? Has your perception in the current political climate been altered regarding your fellow Americans?
