Eric Heist's installation continues his interest in the economic and psychological dynamics of communal idealism in the face of individual interests. As in previous exhibitions by the artist, an array of media is directed toward a research-based approach to an historic event. Opening in the Project Space are new works by Anna Elise Johnson. The title for this exhibition comes from a line in the Dada Manifesto by Tristan Tzara that asks if art is only meant to "cajole the nice nice bourgeois." Her collages manipulate a historical photograph that presents an archetypal scene of political negotiation.
