Event Description

TAM’s Main Gallery Summer Exhibition June 15-August 24

GENERATION W(ar)

21-year olds have never lived during a time when the US was not at war. How and where can we see this reflected in the art works of our time? Where does patriotism end and nationalism begin? How much militarism in a democracy is too much?

This exhibition explores our intersection between art and warfare, of artists who focus their art practice toward political expression and social critique of the institutionalization of war into the fabric of society.These artists investigate the mechanisms behind the militarization of society, the embedding of the warrior culture, the invisibility of things in plain sight and the daily relationship to war that underlies the culture at large.

Curated by Ichiro Irie and Max Presneill

Featuring: Shusuke Ao, Josh Azzarella, Vanessa Beecroft, Dan Van Clapp, Melanie Friend, Shaun Gladwell, Ben Jackel, Jerome Lagarrigue, Dinh Q Lê, Hillary Mushkin, Simon Norfolk, Isabel Rocamora, Kim Rugg, Joaquín Segura, Allison Stewart, Yoram Wolberger, and a special screening by Harun Farocki.
