Redress: black/white and read all over, mixed media & prints
This exhibition particularly looks at the contrasts which occur in our culture surrounding issues which are deemed socially significant for politicians and the people. The issues in question are either “black” or “white”. No gray areas exist to inform and individualize the choice. In this show, Nelson seeks to recreate the stark contrasts of issues in our culture today through use of only the colors black, white, and red. Words and images collide in this work to discuss the issues of sexual power, race relations and gender expectations that have been shaped by decades of post-industrial media messages.
