The Promised Land highlights the ironic consequences of globalization. It is conceived around a central question: Has globalization advanced or hindered society? Conventional wisdom holds that globalization is synonymous with progress and produces tangible benefits. The artists in this exhibition explore whether those perceived benefits are real or imagined. By examining the cultural, sociological, and political problems that have arisen as the byproducts of an increasingly globalizes world, The Promised Land juxtaposes the ideals of co-existence, acceptance, and cultural diversity with the reality of prejudice, alienation, censorship, and nationalism.
