In the Land of Trolls

Title of Exhibition: In the Land of Trolls

In this time of binary oppositions, nuclear war threat and totalitarianism, the internet has allowed people to speak their opinions online more than ever. The internet’s ephemeral platforms and message boards has created a breeding ground for trolls who let their opinions and snide comments run wild. We must ask ourselves how this is the social setting that allowed for the current political climate.

Themes:
The internet and society
Politics and social media
Internet anonymity
Cyber bullying

I am looking for artists whose work encompasses any of these themes. Looking to gather a handful of people willing to participate before contacting galleries. If you would like to meet for coffee to discuss this project, please call me. My name is Ligia Herrera I am a local curator and recent graduate of SAIC. I can be reached by email or by phone at lh4787@gmail.com and 3127850336. If you are working in any medium that deals with these topics I would like to talk to you about your work and hopefully being involved in the project. Thank you.
