From the first voyages to the “new world” in the 1500s to 21st-century late modernity, globalization has impacted quality of life and contributed to a stratified society. This exhibition assembles a multigenerational group of artists working in sculpture, painting, photography, and video art, who uncover markers of class through their work. These markers identify a complex hierarchy in social structures that define and shape us. Without You I Am Nothing explores society’s relationship to labor, consumption, and materiality by examining and encouraging viewers to consider these topics.
This exhibition is curated by Alberto Garcia, UNR Art History graduate.
