Featuring Susie Brandt, Wesley Clark, Emily Erb, and René Trevino


A group exhibition featuring works that examine and dissect deeply ingrained American iconography such as the American flag and printed U.S. currency. The featured artists engage in a literal and tactile deconstruction, reconstruction, and/or re-imagining of this imagery in an effort to process the complex, evolving relationships that they themselves and others have with it—be they critical, reverential, or anywhere in between. ‘MERICA concentrates its lens upon the formal qualities of these symbols—and on issues of patriotism, jingoism, pride, and protest—as well as perceptions surrounding who they actually do and do not represent.
