Event Description

“A Sense of Place” “A Sense of Place,” curated by museum director Tracy L. Adler, is a commentary by a diverse group of contemporary international artists upon the power of place to evoke both shared and personal associations. The works depict sites both real and imaged to explore how a particular time and place can leave its mark.

“Frohawk Two Feathers - You Can Fall: The War of the Mourning Arrows (An Introduction to the Americas and a Requiem for Willem Ferdinand)” A mash-up of real and invented history, the art of Two Feathers reflects the past and the present—traditional European portraiture, Native American art, folk art, and contemporary urban culture—and presents a new perspective on colonialism, imperialism, and racism. Featured characters of varied ethnicities offer an alternative to the Eurocentric version of history. Organized by the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey.
