P/N32 ‘Curated’ – March 13 to April 7, 2017, at Slocumb Galleries. Dr. Foerschner wrote, “Recent political developments in Europe and the US testify to deep-seated divide, high frustration and fear seated in its population. The public discourse is characterized by political and economic themes with humane and cultural issues receiving less attention. The visual arts are pushed into the margins, even though their power as tool for expression of, reflection on, and change of social conditions is undeniable and currently becomes increasingly important. PN32 Curated seeks diverse work that reclaim art’s space in our society, especially in times of political/social upheaval; pieces that are created out of concern with cultural, social, economic and political circumstances.”
