"Cultural Deconstructions"

"Cultural Deconstructions" features 12 collage artists who are deconstructing identity as a way to critique culture. Artists are investigating the interactions between men and women in dating apps; the construction of black masculinity in barbershops; or how toxic masculinity plays out in queer space. They are reaching into history and taking inspiration from Irish literature, Etruscan maps and the imperial workshops of the Mughal Empire. They are using digital technology and traditional methods of cut and paste to make work that mimics our paraprosexic modern life or work that illustrates how memory and nostalgia impact our sense of geography. They are altering books into hyper-illuminated texts and making visual narratives that seek to reform the world using reconstituted images. Curated by Ric Kasini Kadour.
