Mis/Communication: Language and Power in Contemporary Art

Curated by Amy Kahng, a SUNY Stony Brook PhD student in Art History and Criticism, Mis/Communication explores the power of language in a cultural context through video, sculpture, drawing, performance, and interactive media.

Fourteen contemporary artists examine issues such as the global predominance of English, the colonial domination of European languages, and the societal tendency to censure other languages, dialects and linguistic practices.

Group tours are available both during and after gallery hours. Contact gallery director Barbara Racker at 716.673.4897 or barbara.racker@fredonia.edu to make an appointment.

Art exhibition titled Mis/Communication opens February 28 and runs through April 16, 2023. Pictured is a sculpture of a car muffler covered in leather on top of stacked cinderblocks.
