ALIGHT IN THE DARK- Artist Joyce Yu-Jean Lee’s ‘State of the Dysunion’ Extended at NJCU through Mar. 28

Lee’s Work Explores Media’s Impact and The Search for Hope in a Dystopian Culture

 Alight in the dark

By Sally Deering

 We live in the Information Age where we eat, sleep and ‘digest’ news 24/7. Since Donald Trump became the 45th President of the U.S., and reports of Twitterbots and other Internet propaganda machines churning out lies have become the norm for news, it seems impossible for people to get a grip on the truth.

In an effort to make sense of media messages put out during Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s year-long presidential campaigns in 2016, and these dystopian times since Trump’s election, mixed-media artist Joyce Yu-Jean Lee presents “State of The Dysunion” a new art installation on view at the Visual Arts Gallery on Culver Avenue adjacent to the NJCU campus. The show has been extended through Mar. 28. Continue reading ALIGHT IN THE DARK- Artist Joyce Yu-Jean Lee’s ‘State of the Dysunion’ Extended at NJCU through Mar. 28

His painting “Late Bloomers” depicts what seems to be a homeless man catching some shuteye on a bench framed by Van Vorst Park foliage.

Well, it happened. In Tom Barren’s 2016, humanity thrives in a techno-utopian paradise of flying cars, moving sidewalks, and moon bases, where avocados never go bad and punk rock never existed . . . because it wasn’t necessary. Except Tom just can’t seem to find his place in this dazzling, idealistic world, and that s before his life gets turned upside down. Utterly blindsided by an accident of fate, Tom makes a rash decision that drastically changes not only his own life but the very fabric of the universe itself. In a time-travel mishap, Tom finds himself stranded in our 2016, what we think of as the real world. For Tom, our normal reality seems like a dystopian wasteland.” Continue reading Art Listings ARTScene Cultural Happenings in & around Hudson through February 15th, 2017
