The Political Landscapeis the second exhibition of the series The Landscape Interpreted. It reflects today’s political and social problems from the tragedy of South Africa’s apartheid to the threats of a nuclear holocaust, political terrorism, and racial inequality. The issues of the use of mercenaries in Central American conflicts and of Reagan’s economics are also addressed in this exhibition. The work differs in the style and the artistic sensibility from artist to artist; the commitment to social justice becomes the common element of the works in the exhibition.Includes the work of Doug Anderson, Roger Brown, Sue Coe, Robert Colescott, Howard Finster, Leon Golub, John Hull, Cockrill/Judge Hughes, Grégoire Müller, and Ed Paschke.
