AMERICAN DARK AGE
SAM PULLIN & DOMINIC SANSONE
313 GALLERY JERSEY CITY
As America's Dark Age intensifies, multimedia artists Sam Pullin and Dominic Sansone explore the erosion of society and its institutions. Through paintings and sculpture, American Dark Age reveals economic and structural violence, and the catastrophe of capitalist corruption. Interactive installation encourages the viewer to explore their personal participation in violent acts, institutions, and systems, and reflect on their individual relationship to the nation's atrocities.
