America through Lenses

July 3, 2019

Exhibition

What does Independence day mean to you? Is it the remembrance of the declaration of independence? Or maybe the gruesome battles that led up to liberation from England? Maybe you think about the idea of freedom and liberty for all people in America. This collection of Picto photographer’s depictions of the US capture just a few of the many terrains that make up our beautiful nation. America is rugged, nurturing, and the birthplace of so much creativity and prosperity. Through the lenses of these photographers we see the happiness, the oppression and the possibilities available with every waking moment. Independence day reminds us that anything can be liberated from with enough perseverance and time.

Day After Day: RongRong and the Beijing East Village
Nearly four years after the Tiananmen student protests in 1989, Chinese artist RongRong, then a 25-year-old from the southern province of Fujian, joined a group of young and struggling bohemian artists who settled in a desolate village on the outskirts of Beijing. RongRong captured the quotidian yet eruptive life of this community, as many of his fellow artists pushed their bodies to the brink to create radical and subversive performances.
