Manju Shandler  Artist

It’s a rainy day to visit #governorsislandartfair today but I can’t wait to check out all the great work that #4heads have put together. Here is #ettyyaniv ‘s awesome installation made from mixed plastics contemplating plastics in our oceans, a topic I’ve also dig deep into. This work has been featured on the #woart page. I’m a big #woartfan and I love that all these elements come together on this great page curated by #christinamassey . @cmasseyart @woartblog @woartblog

Tonight is the opening! 7-9 #ForWhichIt Stands #OldStoneHouseBrooklyn

WHAT WOULD GEORGE DO?, 2017
Mixed media (graphite, grease pencil, India ink, acrylic and spray paint, gesso, charcoal, pastel, cotton thread on two layers of sewn and printed polyester film) 51” x 36”
From the catelog:
#ManjuShandler ’s #WhatWouldGeorgeDo? #collage, featuring our #foundingfathers #adrift at sea, #stitched to their #flag, #immersed in a #quagmire of #consumerism, asking each other what to do suggests both a contemporary #erosion of #democraticideals, and the #contradictions inherent in a #DeclarationofIndependence that only applied to white landowners. Shandler incorporates images of #patriotic public sculptures partly to question how these #foundingfathers ’ actions would hold up to #publicscrutiny using a modern lens as many of them were #slaveowners. Yet she also recognizes their founding documents’ #visionary #safeguards against “a #dangerouspoliticalleader who would try to govern as a #dictatorship and suggests the extent to which these #livingdocuments are being tested by DonaldTrump’s #presidency. @oldstonehousebklyn #art #mixedmediaart #mixedmedia #dumptrump

Installed! Thank you @oldstonehousebklyn Excited to be getting ready for the exhibition #forwhichitstands . An exhibit about #Flags, #Nationalism and their symbolism and substance. Pictured here: a selection of the works #Diaspiero, part of my series #Behemoths. These Flag/Masks render the nationalist symbol as meaningful as a painted clown or enthusiastic sports fan. Hope to see you on Thursday 8/23 from 7-9pm.
