As we enter our tenth year of programming at the Wassaic Project, we are more than ever thinking about the cultural lens through which we view art. What do we each bring to a work when we consume it? This year’s exhibition, Change of State, showcases art created during a time in which many people in our country have felt divided, angry, vindicated, or confused — and the works reflect these changes and challenges. Consider the individual pieces as you move through the space. You will see elements of nostalgia, fantasy, failure, hope, fear, love, anger, and chaos. Consider who you are, not the groups you identify with, and attempt to welcome each artist’s intentions without your own biases. While not all of the works are political in the traditional sense, it is worth considering the charged political climate in which they have been created and the rural community in which they are being viewed.
