New Faculty Exhibition October 5, 2015Posted by candiceivy in Uncategorized.
Standard Practice explores the intersection of nationalism, patriotism and social rituals. The work in this exhibition looks at how patriotism is being institutionalized and choreographed in our society. By studying, re-performing and drawing the body languages of professional athletes and audience during the rendition of the National Anthem at the beginning of sports events, I examine the common practice of putting “the right hand over the heart” as a manifestation and declaration of loyalty to a country.
