Pure As A Seagull’s Belly

pure as a seagulls belly risd student exhibitions gallery

“One of the challenges that we face as artists is finding a way to talk about ourselves and our experiences without being forced into stereotypical and unexciting identity narratives.” Painters Christian Berman and Marisa Adesman have assembled roughly two dozen student artists for this show, taking into account the challenges of representation in politically loaded times. There’s a map of the United States containing words like “I DON’T BELONG HERE” and “WHITE AMERICA WILL DIE OUT,” while a painting of ants on a ziploc baggie with orange slices is arguably more nuanced.
