> DESCRIPTION

Broc Blegen's "Coming Out Party" showcases new multimedia works he has meticulously copied from original works of art. Blegen has included many familiar names in his collection, especially those artists interested in identity politics, such as Glenn Ligon, Jonathan Horowitz, and Jenny Holzer.

As a young art student growing up in Nepal, Binod Shrestha marched in a quest for democracy and later witnessed years of civil war between Maoist rebels and the ruling monarchy. Taking frequent trips to visit family and friends in Nepal over the years, he has returned with recorded testimonies from others who have seen and suffered the violence firsthand. In "Remnants and Rumination," dozens of his earthenware pots have been punctured and torn apart, as metaphors for the collective human bodies who have suffered from intense physical and political pressures.
