Domestic Politics

Ross Christy, Rick Gribenas, Tom Hall, Mario Marzan, Arturo Rodriguez, and Kammy Roulner

1/28/2005 - 4/2/2005

Television. Labor relations. Immigrant Policy. Consumerism. Urbanism and rural America. The six artists in Domestic Politics examine the family dynamic and its relationship to capitalism. From Tom Hall’s uncomfortable home videos and Arturo Rodriguez’s Ford-Convertible refugee boats, to Mario Marzan’s elegantly tangled webs and Kammy Roulner’s acerbic one-liners, these works address issues of personal versus cultural identity, with in turn dark humor and light playfulness, complex histories and simple narratives.
