poster for Joyce Kozloff “Uncivil Wars”

This event has ended.

In her new body of work, Joyce Kozloff uses Civil War battle maps created by officers from both the Confederate and Union armies to explore underlying violence in the history of the United States. Viruses erupt throughout the battle maps, reflecting the pandemic that locked down state, national, and international borders, symbolizing the viral racism and xenophobia that permeates throughout the United States.

Also featured in the exhibition are works from Kozloff’s earlier series, including Manifest Destiny and American History, that additionally address the violence entangled within the history of our country.

Joyce Kozloff has been an artist and political activist since the 1970s. She was a pioneer of the Pattern and Decoration movement, which analyzed the gendered hierarchies in art history, criticism, and practice, and sought to break down boundaries between fine and decorative art. She was also a founding member of the Heresies collective, which published a quarterly journal about feminism, art, and politics. She continues to work in feminist and anti-war groups today. Her studio practice encompasses painting, sculpture, installations, printmaking, and photography.
