America Selfie at 39th Street Gallery/Gateway Arts Center

America Selfie at 39th Street Gallery

January 6 - 24, 2018

Artist Reception January, 6-8pm

America Selfie at 39th Street Gallery in the Gateway Arts Center in Brentwood MD explores a portrait of America now -- and then -- a contemporary take on history painting.  The work addresses current events while incorporating art historical references, such as The Rape of the Sabine Women by many artists, from Giambologna to Picasso, to reflect the social and political complexity that has formed America since the country's founding.

This exhibition, is a response to the specific configuration of the 39th Street Gallery and is a redesign of the initial site-specific installation at the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College at the University of Mississippi in 2017.
