Gallery Opening: Jean Toche: Impressions from the Rogue Bush Imperial Presidency

Jean Toche: Impressions from the Rogue Bush Imperial Presidency, opens with a reception on 9/17 at 5:00 pm in the Main Gallery of the Franklin Center and runs through 11/29/2009. Kristine Stiles, professor of art, art history, and visual studies, curated the exhibition from her extensive archive of art, artists¿ letters, documents, posters, and ephemera. A 48-page full-color catalog designed by Molly Renda and featuring an essay by Stiles accompanies the exhibition. She writes that, ¿for over fifty years, Jean Toche has made art from the position of moral and ethical indignation, expressed openly and without reservation against political corruption, social hypocrisy, and human rights abuses throughout the world.¿ Toche has lost nothing of his ability to employ art to explore and express critical understandings of global decision-making and social and political acts, especially by the U.S. All works in this exhibition are from 2004 and focus on the administration of George W. Bush.
