Anachronism and Liberation

August 10, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Navigation

Anachronism and Liberation presents nine artists, ranging from emerging to established, creating work that engages with social and/or political issues in subtle and surprising ways. The artists involved are all committed makers, whose approaches offer an expanded vision of what political art pieces that consider issues of imperialism, political oppression, labor rights, environmental justice, race, gender and sexuality can look like. The work deliberately connects to traditional practices and engages in dialog with art history; at the same time, it is powerfully responsive to the urgency of this political moment.

Featured Artists:
Ana Hernandez, Roberto Lugo, Rebecca Ness, Odili Donald Odita, Robert Pruitt, Lisi Raskin, Han Wang, Charles Edward Williams, Alexi Worth

Guest Curator and Essayist:
Jane Irish and Crispin Sartwell
