Venus in a Condo by Joe Vaux
Cultural Revolution showcases local and Texas based artists, including Patrick McGrath Muniz, Jamie Rice, John Milton, Aliester Moffitt, Francisco Javier and Jess Robinson, as well as US artists such as Mark Bueno, Eric Carbrey, Cody A. Seekin, James Perez, Martin Stensaas, Salvatore Zagami, Android Jones, Joe Vaux, James Rodriguez and Donna Lee Steffens. International artists, such as Chris Dyer, Yair Aviv, Andriy Halashyn, Alejandro Leyva, Antonio Guerrero,Hector Pineda, Nicolantonio Mucciaccia, Martina Hoffmann, Paula Rosa, He Si’en, Viktorija Bulava, and Ana Llestin portray artistic perspectives, grounded in the cultures of Canada, Israel, Ukraine, Germany, Cuba, Italy, China, Latvia, and Spain.
The term cultural revolution has multiple meanings within the context of history and relates to themes of nationalism, intellectualism, sexuality, spirituality and various forms of political, economic and social ideology. Throughout the world, societies are shaped through a range of progressive movements, which are often artistic in scope and sometimes violent in means. In contemporary times, technological advancements have directed cultural progression in modes ranging from scientific breakthroughs to advancing global consumerism. China, for example, etched out a status as a closed Communist society though a violent class struggle, referred to as the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, but has within the last generation become one of the new engines of Capitalism, in a display of the dynamic momentum of history and culture.
