Security Question

Through Sept. 10
510-809-0900
Security Question
Security Question, the new juried exhibition at the David Brower Center (2150 Allston Way, Berkeley), approaches the titular topic from every angle. The notion of security has become an increasingly concerning question in America in recent years, and that’s partially because it morphs into new manifestations depending on the perspective you take. In Lino Azevedo’s painting “Natural Blindness,” for example, working people float in a forest, but are robbed of its beauty by blindfolds. The image makes a statement about financial security, which allows for stable living but often costs the other pleasures of life. Charlie Cotello’s “Monk Silhouette,” a photograph of three young monks playing with toy guns, calls upon conversations about gun violence and gun laws, while also alluding to Tamir Rice, the twelve-year-old boy who was shot by Cleveland police last year while holding a toy gun. Those are just two of the angles employed in the thought-provoking group show, which also features the work of Terry Berlier, Jerome Brunet, Rebecca Herman and Mark Shoffner, Gail Bravos, Rodney Ewing, Alison OK Frost, Linda Gass, Michael Hall, Carter Johnston, Kim Miskowicz, Maggie Preston, Paul Taylor, Jesse Walton, and Stephen Whisler.
Opening reception on May 28, 6:30-9:30 p.m.
