I will be participating in BRIC Rotunda Gallery's exhibition "A New Deal, Art and Currency." Please come to the opening reception on Wednesday, January 21, 7 - 9 pm. I will be there!
New Deal, Art and Currency highlights relationships between American presidents and the economy, while observing how these relationships affect art-making. This exhibition takes its name from the social and economic reforms implemented by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the 1930s. For better or worse, each president affects the course and stability of the economy, and likewise, the changing economy affects the stability and reputation of each president. Artists in this exhibition play within the space of literal and imagined artifacts of currency and alternative methods of exchange to push social protest and reconsider material value.
Artists Include: Fundred Dollar Bill Project, Peter Simensky, Fine Art Adoption Network, David Greg Harth, Mark Wagner, Jesús Jiménez, Jon Kessler, Jonathan Herder, Anais Daly, and Anissa Mack.
A catalog featuring essays and reproductions of artworks was produced to conincide with this exhibition.
