POWER/EMPOWER Exhibition

  • Date: May 20-7, 2019
  • Location: ND Musueum of Art

Who owns the power or controls it? Who has the power and can it be shifted, negotiated? Nature pitted against Humans is one of the most important power struggles of our time. Wealth against Poverty is another. People against Government. Religions against Each Other. Belief against Non-belief. Humans verses Religion. Past struggling with the Present as in language being lost to shifting history. Race against Race. Nature against Humans who are also part of nature—all timeless struggles. The North Dakota Museum of Art has acquired important works of art that reveal aspects of power and the conflicts over power. These will be in the exhibition along with contemporary work by four other artists timely today. The exhibition will span four decades, from1985 to the present. Rather than singular pieces the artists are represented by seminal bodies of work.

Hours: 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday-Friday; 1 to 5 PM, Saturday & Sunday
