Dear Friends, Fellow Artists, Concerned Citizens,
BC Space is proud to present a mixed media exhibition, with more than 60 artists, for The Fall. Capital Crime$ is intended to reveal the enormously destructive role that money--and the power it wields--increasingly play in our culture.
Historian Thomas Frank has sounded the alarm loudly and often. In "It's a Rich Man's World," his April 2012 essay for Harper's Magazine, Frank writes, "Over the course of the past few decades, the power of concentrated money has subverted professions, destroyed small investors, wrecked the regulatory state, corrupted legislators en masse, and repeatedly put the economy through the wringer. Now it has come for our democracy itself."
Having exploited our planet and its people to amass great private profit at the expense of the public good, the fat cats of the ruling class are using their ill gotten gains to further subvert what is left of any democratic process in a blatant attempt to expand their hold on power. The evidence of Capital Crime$ is enormous and the effects are felt by all of us. If you are receiving this message, you are already aware of how desperate the situation has become.
The exhibition runs through Saturday, March 23, 2013.
Gallery hours are irregular and event driven, but appointments for viewing may easily be arranged by contacting the gallery at (949) 697-5237 or firstname.lastname@example.org
