The fingers of capitalism touch every aspect of our lives--the artists in this group exhibition explore our collective experience living in its grasp. The works, curated by Priscilla Briggs from submissions for an international call for photo-based imagery and drawings for the zine series Dollars and Sense, explore themes of consumerism, social justice, and the environment.
The 18 participating artists include: Miranda Brandon (Minneapolis, MN), Capucine Bourcart (New York, NY), Eilis Crean (Carrollton, GA), Jasper Fazio (Alexandria, VA), Jon Feinstein (Seattle, WA), Shoshana Fink (Minneapolis, MN), Judith Hornbogen (Leipzig, Germany), Stephen Joyce (Hudson Valley, NY), Elise Kirk (Lawrence, KS), Shanna Merola (Detroit, MI), Katerina Messini (Athens, Greece), John Morris (Newnan, GA), Ellen Mueller (Minneapolis, MN), Sonya Naumann (Los Angeles, CA), Areca Roe (Mankato, MN), Serena Small (Minneapolis, MN), Krista Steinke (Houston, TX), and Ojaswa Thapliyal (New Delhi, India).
3 VOLUMES is a set of zines that will be released in conjunction with the exhibition. The above and following artists contributed artwork to the zines: Ross Bradley (Dublin, Ireland), Susan Carr (Boston), Cora Hentges (St. Peter, MN), Madelyn Kimber (Normal, IL), Hannah Latham (Boston, MA), Róisín Nolan (Dublin, Ireland), Ryan Otero-Price (Orlando, FL), Hye Yeon Shin (Calgary, Canada), Jeanette Shustack-Allred (Philadelphia, PA), and Savvas Verdis (London, England). The zines also feature the poetry of Ed Bok Lee, Taylor Johnson, and Alissa Quart.
Twenty percent of sales will be donated to Honor the Earth Water Protectors. Honor the Earth’s mission is “to create awareness and support for Native environmental issues and to develop the essential financial and political resources for the survival of sustainable Native communities and global climate justice. Honor the Earth develops these resources by using Indigenous music, art, media, and wisdom to ask people to recognize our joint dependency on Mother Earth and be a voice for those not heard.”
Funding for the exhibition has been made possible by the Puffin Foundation. The zine project has been made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. Priscilla Briggs is a fiscal year 2021 recipient of a Creative Support for Individuals grant.
