Projects > Platform

September 30 - January 7 2016. During the 2016 election season I thought the opportunity was rife for artists to examine political rhetoric, social realities, and our national ideals. The invited artists in this exhibition address not only policies that candidates declare on their respective platforms, but also the broad demagoguery of the American social and political landscape.
