DESCRIPTION

Agitated Histories brings together an international and intergenerational group of artists whose works in a range of media create a dialogue with history. For some of the artists in this exhibition, history is a subject to be challenged and even re-written, while for others it is a source of inspiration and creative energy. This exhibition includes the work of Michael Cataldi (New York), Sam Durant (Los Angeles), Deborah Grant (New York), Rodney McMillian (Los Angeles), Loraine O’Grady (New York), Geof Oppenheimer (Chicago), and Mark Tribe (New York and Providence), among others.

The exhibition was organized by Irene Hofmann and presented at the Contemporary Museum in Baltimore in 2011, and will appear in an expanded form in collaboration with Janet Dees, Assistant Curator, at SITE Santa Fe.
