This group show will examine how globalization is narrated through artwork engaged directly with such places as Bali, Panama, Mongolia, Cambodia/Vietnam and Kuala Lumpur to name but a few. The themes - ranging from tourism, to unrequited love, to post-industrial development - reflect a spectrum of artistic approaches and experiences varying in degrees of mediation and subjectivity.
