In this episode of Radio Art Center, the Des Moines Art Center's Director of Marketing and PR Christine Doolittle sits down with Senior Curator Alison Ferris to discuss the upcoming exhibition Ruptures

The unprecedented development of globalized power structures brought about by market economies and a high technology culture has altered socio-political dynamics around the world. Within that, events caused by war, terrorism, political unrest, racism, sexism, immigration, economic crisis, climate change, pollution, epidemics, mental illness, and the tenuous boundaries between the real and the virtual can be described as ruptures. In fact, the word “rupture” is being used frequently now by political scientists, philosophers, and sociologists to describe unexpected and irreversible events that interrupt the continuity of traditional practices.

The exhibition features the work of nine contemporary artists and one artist collective: Berlinde De Bruyckere, Lauren Fensterstock, Mona Hatoum, Roger Hiorns, Steven Young Lee, Beth Lipman, Cornelia Parker, the Propeller Group, Doris Salcedo, and Anne Wilson.

Ruptures is on view in the Anna K. Meredith Gallery from June 3 through September 3, 2017.
