#UNLOAD FOUNDATION - Culture Shock: Is this the American Dream?
Time: 01:00 PM
Free virtual event; Tune in by visiting www.thequicklive.com.
#UNLOAD’s Mary Himes and Miggs Burroughs will host a series of online conversations with Christy O’Connor, the curator of the New Jersey exhibition, Thoughts and Prayers, Another Round of Vacant Stares, and several of its participating artists. We’ll explore their varied responses to the crises of our time–an out-of-control pandemic, public acknowledgement of police brutality, a gun culture that permits mass shootings and high rates of accidental deaths and injuries– and question some basic tenets of the American Dream.
Using photo montage, found objects, old books and collage, Danielle Scott’s work taps into social justice, human and women’s rights, and police brutality. She asks, “Our children are unarmed and not dangerous but being targeted for the color of their skin in America daily. When will others stop feeling threatened by people of color?” We’ll speak with her about gun violence, police brutality, and racism.
