Drawing Connections considers how we chronicle history, and how we go on to tell those stories generation to generation.
These retellings of moments in our histories inform the foundation of how we understand who we are, our relationship each other, the nation, and the world. The visual articulation of a timeline is a powerful thing. It lets us envision our own ability to make the future through our viewing of the past... but at what cost.
Art History is an action.
As an action, it can provide both reward and consequence... and in doing so speak to power… all the while ensuring a narrative that benefits those who wield such power, allowing them to continue to hold on to it.
