International Print Center New York announces Living in America: An Exhibition in Four Acts, an online and in-person exhibition curated by Assembly Room that will unfold over the course of the fall season. Organized into four thematic “acts”—Outrage, Love, Hope, and CareLiving in America explores the transformative power of art in times of crises

Featuring artists Mildred Beltré, Vanessa German, Mark Thomas Gibson, Elektra KB, Yashua Klos, Narsiso Martinez, Azikiwe Mohammed, Nontsikelelo Mutiti, Africanus Okokon, Karen J. Revis, Swoon, William Villalongo, and Dáreece J. Walker. Living in America presents a wide range of practices and spotlights the relevance and adaptability of print formats during political upheaval and resistance. Works include conventional printmaking, mixed media incorporating found printed matter, and those informed by reproduction and dissemination. New work is shown here for the first time by Elektra KB, Yashua Klos, Azikiwe Mohammed, and Africanus Okokon, as well as a site-specific stencil installation by Nontsikelelo Mutiti

“These artists bear witness, through their work, to transformation—cultural, material, and aesthetic—and actively engage each other and their local communities as collaborators and subjects,” says Assembly Room. “As the public struggles to renew America, artists are paving the way and showing us how to channel our outrage, inspire love, live in hope, and act with care.”

Act I: Outrage presents artists channeling rage, pain, and despair into their work; Act II: Love explores love as a radical approach to building a more inclusive society; Act III: Hope illuminates forgotten histories and imagines new futures; and Act IV: Care considers artistic practices that center care as acts of self-preservation and political action. In IPCNY’s Chelsea exhibition space, Acts I and II will open to the public on September 30. After a brief “Intermission,” the gallery will open a new installation comprising Acts III and IV on November 11.
