AMERICA! We are immersed in it from birth. We are fed it. We are dressed in it. We are taught it. We are sold it. America-- as a place, a culture, a concept, and a sensibility-- permeates every aspect of our lives. As artists, we are constantly taking it in and spitting it back out, trying to understand what it means to be part of this all-consuming thing. The works included here respond to this experience with pride and disgust, with fascination and boredom. In what do we believe? For what do we hope? What do we aim to become? This exhibition is as much an observation of where we live as it is an introspective questioning of who we are both as individuals and as a collective whole.
