«The artist has an individual experience as a part of our cultural body while simultaneously serving as a storyteller of its collective truths and protestor of its injustices. The selected works explore the influence of pop culture and street art in this process of truth telling. Who are our heroes and our villains? What does justice look like? What are the consequences of carrying these questions in our work, given the weight of our personal identities? „
— Mojdeh Rezaeipour, juror for “Culture Shock»

Exhibition Dates: September 9 — October 22
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 14th 6 – 8 pm | Gallery Talk 7 pm
