2010. Las Cienegas Projects, Los Angeles, CA. Curated by Biddy Tran.
The Road to Hell is Paved…considers the impact of hegemonic practices on societies, cultures, and individuals that result in marginalization and subordination. In this exhibition, various artists explore these issues, exposing and articulating the resultant fallout that this practice leaves in its wake. Artists deal with issues of colonialism and hegemony by investigating the underpinnings of conventions of representation, as well as utopian or colonialist ideals that perpetuate or produce economic and cultural oppression.
Organized by Biddy Tran, the exhibition includes works by Dennis Adams, Andrea Bowers, Michelle Dizon, Charles Gaines, Joaquin Segura, Nery Lemus and Nate Young.
In conjunction with the exhibition, a full color catalogue was published which includes an essay on the exhibition by Biddy Tran and interviews with Michelle Dizon and Charles Gaines.
