The Art of Democracy Is a National Coalition of Art Exhibitions
on the Dire State of American Politics Scheduled for the Fall of 2008.
"Art of Democracy is building a network of exhibitions and events that will all take place in the fall of 2008. New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle, Atlanta, Puerto Rico, Muncie, and several more locations are planning exhibitions." It is basically an online exhibit of exhibitions all over America that are showing pieces related to politics, the campaign etc...
The work below is straight forward and I think extremely captivating and successful in questing the camera/ the media. The message is to the point however the complexity involved behind what this image conveys is something that has become so deeply buried in society. It is important to remember that every image you see is not the whole image. Do we ever see the entire image?
