Drawn entirely from the Figge’s collection, Urban Exposure, showcases a compelling array of twentieth and twenty-first century artwork exploring the human condition within the urban American scene. Through these diverse views of city life, this exhibition asks us to recognize the experiences we share and what it means to live and work in America.
Within the exhibition, images of city life portraying Americans at work and at play, in good times and bad, will be on display. Explore generations of artists engaging with the urban American scene in assemblage, print, paint, and photography. Works by artists such as Ilse Bing, Peggy Bacon, Isabel Bishop, TJ Dedeaux-Norris, Edward Hopper, Martin Lewis, Samuel Margolies, John Gutmann, Paul D’Amato, Doris Lee, David Plowden, and William Hawkins.
The exhibition will also feature excerpts of films from the Quad Cities’ own Urban Exposure Independent Film Project, showing young filmmakers inspired by the city around us.
