Many thanks to everyone who came out to support the exhibition Flag Me Down, Pick Me Up at Marquee Projects, what a celebratory night with like minds and hearts! At the end of the opening, Bob Morris read his poignant New York Times op-ed from 2016, entitled “From the Mountains, to the Prairies, to the Ocean to Vanuatu”, where the flag enters the frame at the other side of the world.
Flag Me Down, Pick Me Up
Opening Reception: Friday, November 30, 2018
6pm - 8pm
On View: November 30 - December 31, 2018
MARQUEE PROJECTS is pleased to present Flag Me Down, Pick Me Up, a group exhibition featuring recent artworks by Lisa Blas, Tyler Healy and Paul Weiner. A reception for the artists will be held on Friday, November 30th from 6pm to 8pm.
The artists brought together in this show will exhibit work that shares a common interest in the use of the American flag. Flags, in general, have much to do with traditional tribal tendencies and notions of identity: the idea of “us versus them.” But in today’s heated political climate it’s “us versus us,” with divided factions claiming that their allegiance to America is stronger than that of others. This exhibition hopes to bring about greater dialogue on what role the American flag, and what it signifies, now play. Can we pick up the pieces, strive to reduce conflict, and promote a greater sense of unity, peace and equality?
