6pm: american mortal. the art academy of cincinnati is pleased to present american mortal, an exhibition featuring the artwork of becky alley and melissa vandenberg. both artists create works of commemoration, set within the context of united states politics. with current political rhetoric reaching a fever pitch, and the country growing ever more fractured, alley and vandenberg jump into the political fray with sincerity and satire, attempting to untangle themes of nostalgia, gender and the homeland. through a variety of media—sculpture, installation, and works on paper—the artwork challenges cultural notions of power and patriotism, expanding upon an evolving and elusive understanding of american identity. the initial installment of american mortal was hosted in 2016 by transylvania university at morlan gallery, lexington, kentucky. art academy of cincinnati. free. >>
