> DESCRIPTION

SHERRY FRUMKIN GALLERY is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of work by artist Dan Mills. 
US Future States: an Atlas of Global Imperialism opens on Saturday, September 12th with a reception for the artist from 6 to 9 pm. The exhibition will run through November 7, 2009.

Mills began these 35 works on paper in 2003 as a “visual/text exercise” cum wry letter-to-the-editor in response to the increasingly belligerent political and military stance of the US towards other countries. Using justifications by US government officials for going to war with Afghanistan and their impending invasion of Iraq (as well as previous chapters of US history) Mills found that by conceptually pushing this global stance it was possible to justify taking over almost any country. So he did. By the end of 2007 Mills had created maps depicting forty-seven new states and an additional District of Columbia. 

This body of drawings had become for Mills “a grand narrative atlas of global imperialism…in which strategies, rules, and doctrines develop and unfold which at various times are absurd, painful, humorous, and also frighteningly believable.” The works taken together form both the exhibition and the book US Future States Atlas, just released by Santa Monica based Perceval Press.

Dan Mills will be in present for the opening of his exhibition and will sign copies of the Atlas. 
He will also speak at the September 13th "Categorically Not!" event held at the Santa Monica Art Studios www.categoricallynot.com

Mills is available for live interviews between the 12th and 19th of September during his visit to the Los Angeles area. For images and further information, please contact the gallery 310.266.5359
