Artists Nyame Brown, Bethany Collins, Nicole Marroquin, Chris Pappan, and Jessica Vaughn examine traditions in popular American culture that continue to reinforce inequality in the everyday. Written and coded methods of communication are tools these artists employ in their paintings, textiles and prints to translate important lessons of protest into cultural preservation. Whether fact or folktale, the histories explored through the artworks directly connect the past to the future and challenge the author of history itself. The exhibition is curated by Allison Peters Quinn, Director of Exhibition & Residency Programs at Hyde Park Art Center.
