Complex Uncertainties


Another ongoing exhibition at the Jepson Center is based around the condition of the American Artist following WWII. The exhibition takes a look at the rise of America as a world superpower, and with it, a distinctly individual and identifiably “American” approach to art making, to the proliferation of technologies that homogenize American culture today, Complex Uncertainties is an evolving exhibition grounded by works in Telfair’s modern and contemporary collection that sheds light on these responses and reveals some of the ways in which historic events challenge artists to explore unknowns, construct narratives, and react to power. The Ideas surrounding the exhibition have not quite reached the full potential I believe it can, but as their collection grows and the work in the show expands the ideas and concepts that are attempted here with the current show will be much more successful at conveying it to the viewer.
