Translating Politics is a group exhibition that runs September 1 – 4 at the Northrup King Building in Northeast Minneapolis. The exhibit features work in painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, digital video and more, by 13 local artists who offer their perspectives on global politics.
Branko Gulin, a multimedia artist and former museum director and curator in Croatia, juried the show, asking artists to consider how politics affects social justice. “The mission of contemporary, independent artists is to challenge life’s reoccurring themes,” he said. “In this exhibition, the artists challenge politics while telling the truth about a historical or political event.”
Artists include Mary Bacon, Jack Dale, Pete Driessen, Robert Eichinger, Branko Gulin, Shawn Holster, Barry McMahon, Zoran Mojsilov, Sonja Peterson, Monica Sheets, Eric Skoglund, Amy Toscani and Mark Wojahn. The exhibition runs from 1 – 9 p.m. in the third floor gallery of the Northrup King Building (1500 Jackson Street NE #332). Receptions are planned for each night of the exhibition, with invitations extended to local and national elected officials.
