Feldman Gallery Receives RACC Grant

The Regional Arts and Culture Council announced today that PNCA is to receive a grant to support a project by internationally renowned arts collective Critical Art Ensemble (CAE). The project, Critical Art Ensemble: A Monument to Income Inequality is scheduled for Spring 2013 from March 7—May 26, 2013. Teaming with NYU economist Edward Wolff (a specialist in wealth distribution) and mathematician David Sommer, CAE will produce a proportional scale diagram representing relative wealth based on population quintiles. A banner will illustrate relative wealth of each quintile of the bottom 80% (scale of 1 inch = $500) at approximately 50 feet high, with the bottom 20% represented by a 2-foot-deep hole in the ground (representing those who have debt). The top 20% owns such as an astonishing percentage of total wealth, it cannot be represented on the same banner, but will be represented 450 feet in the air (viewers may visit this height via helicopter). The exhibit will feature a publication edited by theorist Brian Holmes.
