Featured Work by YORAM WOLBERGER

Torrance Art Museum (TAM) presents a bold summer exhibition exploring the intersection between art and warfare, enlisting 16 artists who reflect a world of increased military engagement across the globe. Utilizing a wide range of media in its artistic arsenal, deftly maneuvers through the defining trait of our conflicted times to investigate the invisibility of things in plain sight and the daily relationship to war that underlies the culture at large.

Featured Work by JOSH AZZARELLA

Internationally renowned contemporary artists Vanessa Beecroft and Shaun Gladwell are among the assembled artists who focus their art practice toward political expression and social critique of the institutionalization of war into the fabric of society.

21-year olds have never lived during a time when the US was NOT at war. How and where can we see this reflected in the art works of our time? Where does patriotism end and nationalism begin? How much militarism in a democracy is too much?

Curated by Ichiro Irie and Max Presneill.
