DANIEL BEJAR: Going Public
MONDAY SEPTEMBER 10 – FRIDAY OCTOBER 19
Going Public brings together three recent and ongoing projects by artist Daniel Bejar that address themes relevant to the upcoming midterm elections. Rec-elections (2012-ongoing) examines the myth-making strategies of political campaign posters, and re-purposes them as tools to collectively challenge our national myths; RE-districting (2017) exposes the inequities arising from gerrymandered electoral maps; Get Lost! (2009-2012) restores the history of New York City by re-imagining it prior to colonization.
MONDAY NOVEMBER 5 – SATURDAY DECEMBER 15
Food is a basic necessity of life, but our relationship to food is shaped by cultural factors such as class, race, gender, and ethnicity, and subject to manipulation by consumer advertising and social media. This exhibition brings together a diverse group of artists who examine the theme of food and its complex meanings in our contemporary world.
