More than 30 artists consign imperative ideas and concepts related to societal issues, intimately connected to cultural politics in this exhibition curated by Milagros Bello PH.D. They project a critical regard towards a world in its most crucial stages. Sex, illnesses, aging, death, addiction, poverty, social class, identity, and gender, form the conceptual base for these decisive languages. Cynical aesthetic notions dominate in the show creating a new vortex of criticism and revolt. Sharp multivocal and polytonal voices of discomfort and opposition set force, shifting perspectives on the subjectivity and the ego; redesigning and subverting the frames of conventional relationships to culture. They do not interpret but rather shape and fashion a new comprehension of the world. As Susan Sontag once said on photography: “Photography today does not ‘record’ but critically ‘intervenes’ reality.”
