Centennial is an exploration of the contemporary American political and social landscape, 100 years after the historian Frederick Jackson Turner famously declared the “closing of the American frontier.” A new large woodblock print mural entirely covers two walls in the gallery. It acts as a vacant mise-en-scène that once possessed the expansive hope of the American frontier. On the opposite two walls, a series of smaller print/collage/drawings loaded with content from the lost hope and aspirations of the ‘American Century’ will be displayed.
