Constant as The Sun, Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland, OH

June 2 — September 17, 2017

Constant as The Sun is the third in MOCA’s series of regional biennial exhibitions. The title references a line in a poem by Peter Davies titled "Allison," written following the shooting of four college students during protests at Kent State University on May 4, 1970. Constant as The Sun presents newly commissioned and existing works that explore the power and provocation of socially-conscious art and its relevance to the urgent issues we face here and beyond. Bringing together artists from Northeast Ohio and the surrounding area including Detroit, Pittsburgh, and Columbus, the work in the exhibition demonstrates the diverse, often collaborative approaches to portraying, building, and connecting communities. 

Artists on view: 
Acerbic (Donald Black Jr., Ali McClain, and Gabriel Gonzalez), Matt Eich, Tyree Guyton, Institute For New Feeling (Scott Andrew, Agnes Bolt, and Nina Sarnelle), Liz Maugans, Danielle Julian-Norton, Kate Sopko & Angela Beallor, Darius Steward, Transformazium (Dana Bishop-Root, Leslie Stem, and Ruthie Stringer), and Corine Vermeulen.
