“While contemporary art has intrinsic limitations on its efficacy in shaping social life and public policy, it does play an important role in shaping the narrative post facto."

- Co-curator Todd von Ammon

Curated to appear together for the first time, the works in World Peace reflect the culture of identity, and the divided and fractured political climate of America’s past and present. This timely and compelling multi-media exhibition contains photography, sculpture, video, site-specific installations, works on paper and protest art that address the culture of American politics. The group show features both local and world-renowned artists, featuring commentary on contemporary media culture, the criminal justice system, and the relationship between science and religion.

Showcased local and international artists include: Enrico Baj, Robert Beck, Huma Bhabha, Nayland Blake, Jennifer Bolande, Alexander Calder, Class Action Collective, Renee Cox, Catharine Czudej, Jessica Diamond, Marcel Dzama, Naiad Einsel, Mark Flood, Richard Frank, Nicholas Galanin, Richard Hamilton, Spencer Heyfron, Jonathan Horowitz, Corita Kent, Glenn Ligon, Marilyn Minter, Cady Noland, Spencer Platt, Wendy Red Star, Tabor Robak, Lorraine Schneider, Taryn Simon, Devin Troy Strother, Tracy Sugarman, Frank Thiel, Hank Willis Thomas, Bill Traylor and Julia Wachtel.

MoCA Westport Executive Director Ruth Mannes and Director of Exhibitions Liz Leggett collaborated with Todd von Ammon, art dealer, independent curator and director of von ammon co., in Washington, D.C. to curate the exhibition.
