Description


Barbara McCarren and Jud Fine, two California artists who have worked collaboratively since 1996, will exhibit large-scale art works based on international currencies. Several works are comprised of hundreds of reproductions of life-size bank notes that are assembled into shapes – multi-colored mandalas, floor pieces that resemble textiles, and a wall installation of tile-patterned squares. Other works, on paper, depict extracted images from currencies including those that make up the Iraq coalition forces. Using money as a symbol for exchange, the exhibition addresses economic relationships between nations as well as competing cultural identities. A nation’s currency is represented as a self-portrait.
