Usdan Gallery Presents: 'Uniting States of Americans'
Usdan Gallery’s first exhibition of the year, Uniting States of Americans, a presentation by Cynthia Weber that documents and juxtaposes two of the most significant periods in recent American history, is on view through October 18.
The exhibition includes a series of films, photographs, and textual vignettes from Weber’s coverage of post-9/11 America and of the Occupy Wall Street movement. Her works examine experiences of citizenship that fragment, de-idealize, and refigure national myths about identity, citizenship, tolerance, equality, and patriotism, while inviting people to engage in debate.
Weber, a professor of International Relations at Sussex University, England, and documentary filmmaker, writes, produces, directs, and edits films that critically engage with U.S. identity, citizenship, and human rights practices.
