Project for a New American Century

“Project for a New American Century” is the title of an 80-foot long work on paper by artist Dominic McGill, which will be featured in this exhibition of new works from the Rose collection.

Project for a New American CenturyMcGill’s monumental artwork is a panoply of images, texts, slogans and multiple narratives that addresses America’s complex history and current status as an economically wounded and threatened world power. Presented on the eve of America’s next presidential elections, McGill’s work addresses issues crucial to us all.

In the past three years, the Rose has been given or was able to purchase more than 60 works of art that reflect the most important trends in contemporary art.

“Project for a New American Century” will include paintings, photographs and works on paper from dozens of artists, including Matthew Antezzo, Roy Arden, Joanne Greenbaum, David Reed, Beat Streuli, Jim Hyde and Jessica Stockholder.

The exhibition is curated by guest curator Randi Hopkins.
