Following this year’s presidential election, threesquared will present “Texts”, an exhibition of new works by multimedia artist and Austin Peay State University professor of art Barry Jones. From wall-mounted iPhones displaying the Ten Rules of Conduct used by civil rights activists during the 1960s lunch counter protests in Nashville to outdoor projected tweets from Tahrir Square, Jones’ work ultimately questions the possibility of significant political change and upheaval in the United States. The exhibition will include a series of videos, which explore well known political texts and manifestos, displayed simultaneously through projections, TVs, smart phones, and other devices to create a bombardment of information that provokes a poignant dialogue with viewers regarding the socio-political role and responsibility of media and technology in the digital age. The opening party will be held on November 9th from 6-9 pm. Wine and light refreshments will be served. Parking is free.
