Graham Wilson: dam’ nāshen



February 5 – April 20, 2019

The Edith Langley Barrett Art Gallery at Utica College is pleased to present the exhibition Graham Wilson: dam’ n?shen

Artist Graham Wilson’s exhibition dam’ n?shen features large-scale installations that use tropes and signifiers of the persistent violence and political upheaval that characterize daily life in America to explore and reflect upon recent history. Through provocative site-specific work, Wilson draws on both specific events and what has become commonplace gun violence in the US to explore societal suffering and reflect on our current collective mourning process. Wilson has conceived of an exhibition the takes the form of an individual navigating his way through society, confronting the tragedy and embedded hope of our current social and political situation.
