REVOLUTIONARY: Being American Today
January 11 – March 7, 2020
Kennedy Heights Art Center
Revolutionary: Being American Today, seeks to unpack the definition of citizenship and what it means to be a citizen in the United States. This group exhibition uses the voices of various artists to express how a person’s race, gender, sexuality or immigration status defines the way they view themselves as citizens and as individuals within the United States. Collectively their work examines themes of identity, community, and tradition, and grapples with issues of stereotyping, visibility, and violence.The combination of their work, while sharing individual stories, creates a dialogue that offers the audience the chance to consider their own place within American society, what citizenship means to them, and contemplate the perspectives of others on a topic that may often be misunderstood.
Revolutionary: Being American Today features the work of Kiah Armstrong, John Brooks, Amanda Curreri, Stephanie Cuyubamba Kong, Brianna Harlan, Anissa Lewis, Melissa Vandenberg, and Renzo Velez.
