Featuring: William Cromar
AN EXHIBITION PRESENTED BY PHILADELPHIA SCULPTORS AND DVAA, JURIED BY ALICE OH @ DVAA
PUBLIC OPENING RECEPTION:
Wed. February 26, 2020, 6-8pm
Subversion is the second collaborative exhibition between Da Vinci Art Alliance and Philadelphia Sculptors, following Shelter in 2018. For Subversion, artists were encouraged to submit artwork that pushes back. This exhibition highlights artwork that undermines or challenges social structures, morals, traditions, authority, perceptions and even human nature. Subversion confronts and questions everything from politics, gun rights and violence, to art history and the art world, gender norms, social problems and environmental threats.
Juror Alice Oh selected 27 works from 18 artists that address, in ways both humorous and dire, the political landscape of our present day. Through formal references such as a pistol, the human form, nature, and President Trump, the work in Subversion confronts our corrupt reality and proposes possibilities for a just future.
