Ann Morton ‘Unentitled: The Inaugural Edition’ show opens January 18th 2013

Living by sheer circumstance through events large and small, over time we envelope ourselves with the shroud of our cultural influences.
Thru the filter of my own experience as a white female born in1950′s America, I explore themes of assumed entitlements, homogenization, marginalization, and human obsolescence – social divides we’ve come to accept as normal cultural paradigms.
In questioning this acceptance, I recognize the insignificant – marginalized found objects and disenfranchised people. Driven by a desire to make right, the exhibition reflects my own handwork, but also orchestrates handwork of homeless individuals.
In this inaugural season, and after our experience of last 4 years of a historic administration, this show
presents an examination of our place in history, our sense of lost entitlement and contemplates how we’ve
become a product of our society’s headlines.
The work in this exhibition exploits traditional fiber techniques as conceptual tools for aesthetic, social
communication to examine a society of which we are all a part – as bystanders, participants, victims and
perpetrators
