The portraits and landscapes of the United States elucidate the ongoing tensions between individual and collective identities, the cultural work of beauty, and the false, but easy correspondence between politics and power, that have shaped our rhetoric, our communities, and our laws. This talk elucidates how certain works point us toward past and present understandings of “America” in the civic imagination and possibly, justice.
