  • Overview

    The artists in Visual DisObedience respond to the current state of affairs in our culture. Their artworks are a form of concentrated awareness. The saying that “visual artists make the invisible visible” proves true in this exhibition: the artists allow us to see relationships between mandates handed down by our governing system and the results on human beings. These relationships would otherwise be invisible abstractions: the mandate and the result widely separated by time and distance. Artworks included in the exhibit raise questions and propose new ideas, and at times they create desirable alternatives to present circumstances.
