Nancy Chunn: Media Madness


November 3, 2007 – January 18, 2008

  •  Saturday, November 3, 5-7pm
    •  Public reception and gallery talk
  • Sunday, November 11, 2:30pm, Otis Forum
    •  Conversation: Nancy Chunn speaks with Barry Glassner, author of Culture of Fear: Why Americans Are Afraid of the Wrong Things, and The Gospel of Food: Everything You Think You Know about Food is Wrong.


Chunn’s paintings portray the power of the media to define and control public opinion. A self-proclaimed “political junkie,” she achieved critical success with her early map paintings of tyrannized nations and has continued her commitment to documenting world events. For her Los Angeles exhibition, Chunn presents a large painting entitled 9/11, a selection of work from her major series Front Pages, and five new painting installations from Chicken Little and the Culture of Fear, a series that focuses on the terrorism crisis in America and the panic it perpetuates. Chunn is represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts in New York City.
