#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.
A former prop maker for Apple and Bloomingdales, Suprina’s sculptures are narrative and figurative and deal with our human condition and social issues. We’ll chat with her about her installation piece, Bang Bang, a 6-foot handgun made from repurposed stuffed animals, and whether art can be dangerous to the public.
