The talk has resulted in the work being added to The Cultural Landscape Foundation's 2014 list of endangered works (aptly titled Landslide). Photographs of the site are provided by our very own Allison V. Smith.

Whose Dog Are You?, 1988
Ink on paper
11" x 7"
Join Barry Whistler Gallery at the newest exhibition in the Wilcox Space: Private Words, curated by Leigh Arnold, Assistant Curator at the Nasher Sculpture Center.
Arnold has assembled works of John Wilcox that grapple with written text and the struggle in ascribing language to themes of trauma, discipline, and identity--particularly amongst the backdrop of the AIDS crisis in New York.
We are grateful that both Glasstire and Front Row have listed it on their top 5 for the weekend!
The exhibition opens 5:00 – 7:00 PM. October 24, 2014.

God Bless America, 2014
Site-specific installation, looping soundtrack
Lauster says of the work, which can be viewed online,
"My site-specific installation isolates the repetitive recordings of numerous politicians vocalizing the phrase “God bless America” in a large dark space illuminated by a reflecting mirror ball. My soundtrack includes the voices of 37 politicians from all political parties. Beyond its intent to reinforce policy with Christian ethics, the phrase has also become a de-facto reference to American exceptionalism. It is my hope that the piece will create a conversation based on the powerful yet conflicting nature of the American relationship between religion and government, as well dissect public conceptions of leadership, nationalism and collective progress through the presentation of a majestic yet melancholy environment."
