The Glittering Point
June 27 - July 21, 2013
Opening Reception: Thursday, June 27, 6-8:30pm
Artist's Talk: Thursday, June 27, 6:30pm
The Glittering Point refers to the phrase “glittering generalities,” a mid-‐nineteenth century description of propaganda involving vague words or phrases used to evoke positive feelings rather than to convey information. Employing sensational imagery of war, sparkling luxury items, and political campaigns culled from The New York Times, this exhibition includes prints, paper-‐cuts, and drawings that explore the moment when symbols cease to direct, support, or explain logically, and instead provoke generalized sensations of the sublime.
