THIS IS AMERICA
Closing Reception w/ Artist Talk & Performance by Marvin Tate
August 25, 2019
4pm - 7pm
5pm - 6pm Talk & Performance
This Is America, 5 Points Art Gallery & Studios’ 4th art show, is a consciously curated group exhibition coinciding with the United States' Independence Day with visual artworks by 18 artists from traditionally overlooked vantage points, responding to the patriotism and nationalism the holiday was constructed to imbue. The closing reception will feature a brief artist talk and performance from exhibiting Chicago artist, Marvin Tate.
This Is America is meant to, both, corroborate and challenge the notion of Americanism, citizenship and belonging, racial representation, historical and cultural influence, religious freedom, national and global amnesty, and pride in iconography associated with the red, white and blue, stars and stripes. With a breadth of work reflecting upon current and historical concepts and lived experiences, viewers are posed to find commonality or grapple with divergent perspectives tied to their nationalistic, political, and racial identities.
This Is America exhibiting artists are Wisconsin-based, national, and international and works are equally diverse, including but not limited to paintings, drawings, collages, textiles/fiber art, mixed media compositions, photography, audio visual, sculptures, and conceptual installations.
