October 1 – December 10, 2016

Room Gallery

Opening reception: Saturday, October 1 from 2– 5 p.m.

The UAG is proud to present – for the second time – the inaugural exhibition of our Critical Aesthetics Program: Sharon Hayes’ After Before. Originally commissioned in 2004, After Before constructs a quasi-documentary multi-channel film where two actors conduct interviews on the streets of New York City– two months prior to the US Presidential Elections – in an attempt to illuminate the state of the nation. Its re-staging along a similar timetable today continues to project contested ideas of what it means to be a U.S. citizen.

All exhibitions are free admission and open to the public.
