Gallery Project presents Mine Yours, a multimedia exhibit in which 31 local, regional and national artists explore at various system levels issues of possession, boundaries, privacy and encroachment.
The exhibit opens on Wednesday, February 23 and runs through Sunday, April 3. The opening reception is Friday, February 25 from 6-9.
At the interpersonal level Mine Yours looks at real and artificial barriers people create to separate themselves from others; at the group level the social symbols groups latch onto to establish their uniqueness; and at the international level the disputes nations have over territory, water rights, and air space. The changing relationships between governments and their citizenry will be explored in the context of growing surveillance in the ages of terrorism, globalism, and information technology. Finally, human pathologies, resulting from some of these phenomena will also be explored such as hoarding and various addictions people develop as they retreat further into real or imagined safe havens. Mine/Yours invites participating artists to comment visually on these social phenomena, and their varied impacts and behavioral adaptations.
