Capitalism & Culture Exhibit

With the recent economic “crash” the system of capitalism has come under increasing questioning by citizens.

Artists and community members respond to life within capitalism: the contradictions and ethical problems it presents, it’s impact on us as individuals and groups, as well as what we think about it. As individuals who survive capitalism we generate knowledge about and against it, which is conveyed through a space we have created to explore the language of art.

Multi media works are presented as in dialogue, to open up a public conversation about capitalism in the Junction where we share space.

The works span the mediums from photography, painting, sculpture, video, audio, installation, knitting and performance and embrace themes of ecology, class, history, war, homelessness, hope, nurturing, friendship, recognition, language, humor...and so much more.
