Reinterpretation as Resistance: Artists Questioning Normative Iconography
Oct 02-Nov 02
Particularly in times of increasing unrest, art can be a powerful tool for advocacy. In advance of the 2018 United States mid-term elections, the Natalie and James Thompson Art Gallery presents a group exhibition of works by Libby Black, Ken Botto, Maggy Rozycki Hiltner, Alexander Kosolapov, Liliana Porter, Josh Reames, Dread Scott, John Sims, and Victor Yanez-Lazcano that question the social values, attitudes, and beliefs embedded in American society to expose deeply seated cultural myths and prejudices.
