> DESCRIPTION

The nonprofit organization Shade Projects, which manages the art exhibitions at the monOrchid, is all about bringing awareness to social issues through art.  In May 2013 government reports and major media articles caused a debate over the corporate tax structure of Apple, Inc., and its legality under the current U.S. tax codes.  For monOrchid owner Wayne Rainey and curator Justin Germain, the perfect idea for an exhibition about a serious and relevant social issue arose.

The exhibition examines the current rift between capitalism and patriotism.  Artwork included in the exhibition will be based on artist’s research and opinion, using the example of the Apple’s recent headlines as a platform to explore ideas of fiscal patriotism, tax loopholes for big business, and the relationships between consumerism and international policy.  The exhibition is more than images that explain a situation, it is a conversation starter.  Germain states, “We meant to begin a discussion and encourage people to look beyond the surface of capitalism and into social issues that actually affect their daily lives.”

The multimedia exhibition features works by Jeff Davis, Zabet Pucket, Angel Cabrales, Wayne Rainey, Teresa Dendy, Fred Tieken, Randy Zucker, Craig Cheply, and Larry Willis.
