Curatorial Vision 2020: The preliminary thematic framework for By the People 2020 is entitled CULTURE SUPREME featuring installations and performances addressing the current shift in how Americans enact and shape democracy, from a political to a cultural perspective. Artwork at BTP 2020 will examine how culture is the single driving force in our major societal systems. CULTURE SUPREME will include both local and nationally-acclaimed artists who will present multi-disciplinary works which ask us to consider the society in which we live, the systems and institutions we take for granted, and dialogues around the future we want to build for humanity.
