What are the costs and consequences of allegiance? This We Believe explores the power and evolution of belief systems—religious, political, economic—and how adherence to and rejection of these ideologies has influenced our current global culture of divisiveness and polarization. From the imagery of disillusionment and protest by THE KID, Kota Ezawa, Claire Fontaine, Stephanie Syjuco, and others, to revelations of historical complexity by Titus Kaphar, Kapwani Kiwanga, and Kara Walker, to visions of transcending binary definitions of identity by Yinka Shonibare CBE, Maïmouna Guerresi, and Zak Ové, the artworks featured question and critique unalloyed allegiance to creed or country.
*Venue is wheelchair accessible.
This event is open to Collectors Circle members only. Please RSVP to Karina Quintana Space is limited; please respond early to secure your place.
