Stories about America
Gasoline Rainbow brings together the work of five contemporary artists from outside of our NYC metro “bubble.” These artists address their sense of place through drawing, sculpture, painting, and photography. Together, the work offers a sense of the plurality of American life. None of the artists shy away from politics, but each one’s work is about something more personal than our collective American pride or shame.
The timing of this exhibition is deliberate; a reminder as we head into the midterm vote that our country the setting for millions of simultaneous compelling stories.
The exhibition takes its title from the 1993 Built to Spill song “Nowhere Nothing Fuck Up,” the refrain of which is “In America / every puddle / gasoline rainbow.”
