Dinora Justice is one of five featured artists in this momentous exhibition of “contemporary art that examines the use of “fantastical” aesthetics – conceived here as extravagant, ornamental, or, in certain instances, surreal – to address multidimensional political themes.”
“Fantastical, Political presents works by five contemporary New England artists: Dave Cole, Cynthia Consentino, Mohamad Hafez, Dinorá Justice, and Joo Lee Kang. Their absurd and extravagant integration of decorative techniques—marbling, blue-and-white ceramic traditions, and architectural ornament, among others—will inspire you to look past decorative appeal to uncover political content. In this exhibition, the “fantastical” is leveraged as political commentary, stretching far beyond themes related to governmental affairs.”
