Dean Drever: Everything is going to be okay again soon.
September 28, 2013 - January 2014
A survey show of Dean Drever’s work from 1998 - present
Curated by Robert Enright
By exploring power in various forms, most explicitly, power expressed through violence, Drever makes vulnerable the continuum from individual freedom to social justice. Drever’s sculptures unmask a mythology of dominance to show how the oppressor shares the same disempowered space with the oppressed.
