POWER and PRIVILEGE — This exhibition explores the extant tension and structural limitations of the concepts of “power” and “privilege” as they are commonly perceived in historically determined meanings and contemporary, socially conscious interrogations. These works are intended to both expand and challenge awareness of current issues, institutions and individualized paradigms which restrict, impair or otherwise confine equity, justice and liberty, both locally and globally.
Through their distinct technical skill and conceptual fluency, each artist celebrates individual form and personal interpretation. No one subject, medium, technique or style is duplicated or subjected to a confrontational hierarchy; each artist has chosen to engage in an often uncomfortable dialogue between diverging perspectives and potent expressions/experiences of power and privilege.
Curated by Julio S. Flores, Associate Professor in the Visual and Media Arts Department.
