The United

October 2, 2020 - January 24, 2021

“The United” examines the incredibly complicated topic of immigration in a time when immigration systems are in crisis — affecting many of us closely, as members of diverse communities, as descendants of immigrants, or as immigrants ourselves. The exhibition with artwork from 12 artists from Belgium, Northern Ireland, Russia and the US explores the possibilities for proactive engagement with immigration issues, reconfiguring the status and function of art from passivity to active agency. Curated by Johanna Lasner

 

Exhibitions

The Hodge Gallery at Pittsburgh Glass Center presents critically acclaimed contemporary glass art exhibitions throughout the year. A wide range of work in glass is showcased from student exhibitions to cutting edge installations by established artists that incorporate light, sound and time-based elements. With these exhibitions, PGC is expanding the perception of glass from purely functional item to the realm of sculpture, installation and expression.
