In the midst of a nationwide racial and gender reckoning, how does contemporary art challenge us to confront our fractured reality, and what role does the artist play in this challenge?
North Carolina artists Susan Brenner, MyLoan Dinh and Charles Farrar will take those question head on in The Elder Gallery of Contemporary Art’s February exhibition, The Art of Struggle. This socially charged show addresses the consequences of our complex, unresolved history around race and gender and invites conversation and inquiry. Through the power of story – both personal and collective – these artists explore the gray areas that make humans complicated and interesting, while embracing the job of the artist to imagine possibilities and to shift thinking. In a panel discussion on Tuesday, February 13, these participants will examine the impact artists can have on how we view and address the tumultuous events and social realities of the day.
