About the Exhibition

April 14–July 29

Horicon Bank Gallery

In this site-specific installation, Madison artist and printmaker Jennie Gao focuses on the gundog (war and violence) and the bulldog (protest and speech), which are pitted against each other in a fight to the death.

Gao believes that the common denominator behind current arguments about technology, war, human rights, and climate change is rooted in what people believe is necessary to “survive,” even if their solutions differ. Gao argues that creativity can connect different people and perspectives in the search for a shared purpose.
