What is power? How is it bestowed? Of what is it composed? Is currency a form of power? Why? Why not? This
groundbreaking group show explores two of mankind’s most consequential and enduring forces.


Power – (pou-er) – noun

Ability to do or act: capability of doing or accomplishing something.
Political or national strength.
Great or marked ability to do or act; strength; might; force.
The possession of control or command over others: authority; ascendancy.

Currency – (kur-uh n-see) – noun.

Something this is used as a medium of exchange, money
General acceptance: prevalence: vogue
A time or period during which something is widely accepted and circulated
Circulation, as of coin

Much more than just its literal definition, power can be a form of currency. Likewise, currency can create or instill power or take it away.  In this group show, artists will explore and interpret these two fundamental forces, using a palette of visual and audio tools and components. Both power and currency can be alluring and addictive. The downside is that they can be destructive, alienating, elitist, and ego-driven.  As history shows through its great dictators, power and currency can also be used for the betterment of mankind.
