THIS IS AMERICA

8.08. - 5.09. 2021 | Kunstraum Potsdam
Eingabedatum: 07.08.2021

THIS IS AMERICA brings together 36 artists, US and foreign-born, who have chosen to call the United States their home. Primarily featuring works created in 2020 and 2021, this exhibition reflects a global sense of precarity and provides a kaleidoscopic view into a country plagued by injustice and inequality. Representing a cross-section of experiences, the artworks included in THIS IS AMERICA contend with a range of issues from housing insecurity and the opioid epidemic to domestic violence and police brutality.

The exhibition - featuring 36 artists - is curated by albertz benda, NY in collaboration with Arndt Art Agency (A3).

Representing a cross-section of experiences, the artworks included in THIS IS AMERICA contend with a range of issues from housing insecurity and the opioid epidemic to domestic violence and police brutality.

The issues tackled in this exhibition are seemingly disparate, yet all represent aspects of the American experience. Bringing together a multiplicity of perspectives, THIS IS AMERICA offers a variegated view into the political and cultural melting pot that is the United States today.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue published by DISTANZ, Berlin including more than thirty statements written by the contributing artists as well as thematic essays by Kathy Battista and New York Times best-selling author Roxane Gay.
