A Brighter Day focuses on contemporary themes of alienation, paranoia, political outrage, deviant behavior, cyberspace, global politics and the ultimate drug; consumerism. These dystopic visions are explored in a variety of media.

The ominous tenor of these times has embedded itself in the psyche of artists today. They are peeling back the veneer and delving into this collective anxiety. The challenge is to find individual voices amidst the maelstrom and glut of images with which we are bombarded. Whether it is with irony, humor or earnestness, the works in A Brighter Day are mediations on our uneasy relationship with the world in its present state.
