We live in a world that is defined by American Pop icons like MTV, Hollywood, CNN, Disneyland, McDonald’s, Coca-Cola and Superman. What are the views of America beyond the dominant commercial aesthetic? What are the other faces of our country that we want to present to the rest of the world? What are the issues and ideas that concern us? Who and where is the ‘Other America’? What are the stories about life and art in the United States that reflect other narratives and visions of who we are? How do we define ourselves outside the American mainstream? Other America is a multidisciplinary arts exhibition that investigates views of America beyond the conventional aesthetic. Other America presents artworks that symbolize the undercurrents of life in the United States.
