Global/National is an exhibition that addresses the environmental and socio-economic anxieties that define the chaos of globalization. It investigates how local artists from a variety of backgrounds are placed in relation to the rest of the world. Seen through a global lens, this exhibition explores the multiple cultures that populate our general culture and how the local and national are inextricably linked to the global. This exhibition examines the tensions of uncontrollable forces that are dislocating our society to redefine a new civilization. The works reflect how the national contains global concerns, searching inside our culture to project our global position.
Global/National was conceived by Papo Colo and curated by Colo and Jeanette Ingberman.
