Art From Anxious Times
A group exhibition that examines how contemporary artists are expressing or reflecting concern about terrorism, war, environmental degradation and globalization. Artists include: Maya Lin, Jean-Pierre Roy, David Opdyke, Joan Fontcuberta, Dozier Bell, Robert Selwyn and others.
The opening was last night. Being in Atlanta, I will not be able to see the show. JP Roy is a good friend of mine, and assuming he's not the only person who will read this blog, I encourage everybody who can to go up to 59th St and check it out. It's a show about big things that are hard to effectively address in art. Still, it's a good roster, and I imagine it's a pretty solid show.
