Exploring the 2013 NoMAA grantees exhibition, the spectator is rewarded by a variety of artistic and conceptual approaches. The history of art is present, as is a diversity of materials. The street, music, political engagement, fantasy, community activism, feminism, love of the landscape, and social engagement are all present in some way.
An exhibition of work that is circumscribed by neighborhood above all else reveals more about the individual artists than about the cultural production of our area. It does, however, acknowledge the fundamental fact that culture, and — by extension — knowledge, is being produced.
