America is in a season of malaise, perpetually struggling with war, intolerance, environmental degradation, fear, gun violence, and alienation, all of which seem to quell optimism and growth. The works featured in this exhibition express the mood currently experienced in the United States, and reflect the stark landscape, chilly air, and quiet introspection of winter. The artists included tread readily in this dark season—documenting the fall of Saddam Hussein, interacting with the landscape of the Israel/Palestine border, challenging ingrained stereotypes---in order to expose the cold heart of conflict and create beauty despite the chaos. Taking its title from the 2006 Hank Willis Thomas and Kambui Olujimi video which reenacts Thomas’s cousin’s pointless murder over a gold chain, Winter in America examines the disheartening events that seem to continually impede progress, but despite it all, maintains the hope for change in the coming of Spring.

Dedicated to the loving memory of Claude Simard whose life and work has taught us so much and is carried on in our hearts daily.
