The University of Arkansas School of Art, presents M.F.A. Thesis Exhibition Lauren Whitmore, 'Turning Tides'. The exhibition will take place April 9-13, 2018 at the sUgAR Gallery in downtown
'Turning Tides' scrutinizes how power structures are deeply ingrained in society, generating an environment in which abuse of power often goes unchecked. Textiles are used as medium and metaphor to reiterate that abusers are pervasive in all aspects of life.
The work hopes to change the narrative in favor of survivors through the destruction of perpetrators' statements of denial. Additionally, the show looks to challenge viewers to examine their own roles in the perpetuation of these social structures.
