Drawn to disaster
Wednesday, June 22 – Sunday, August 7, 2011
Opening Reception on Thursday, June 23rd 2011 6 - 8pm
In this age of the 24-hour news cycle the media bombards us with sensationalist imperatives, looking towards the next storyline, ignoring the vulnerability of those left behind when journalists leave. In this exhibition artists examine the ephemerality of news reports and conjure the complexities of disorder, anger, and optimism that can follow disaster.
Featuring work by: Anthony Campuzano, Dave McKenzie, Christian Holstad, Carlos Motta, Sun Xun, Dominic McGill, Stacy Howe, Deb Sokolow, Yael Bartana, Daniel Guzmán, and Lisi Raskin.
