State of the World

February 10, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - March 18, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

State of the World presents work by 14 artists whose projects invoke and explore the symbolic power of the flag as a means to understand and question the power structures they represent and, at times, create imaginative new proposals for alliances and allegiances.

Artists are Vito Acconci, Sonya Clark, Edith Dekyndt, Mounir Fatmi, Komar & Melamid, Pedro Lasch, Lucy + Jorge Orta, Georgia Papageorge, Mike Sinclair (’74 photography), Allison Smith, Faculty Member James Woodfill (’80 painting) and Yara Said for The Refugee Nation.

Employing artistic strategies including abstraction, representation, and performance, these artists investigate ideas relating to identity, alienation, nationalism, citizenship, signaling, and agency as they confront issues pertinent to global culture today and respond to social and political stress and unrest of our time.

Opening Reception on Friday, February 10 from 6-8 p.m.
Hours Noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
