State of Disobedience

“It’s necessary to maintain a state of disobedience against . . . everything.” Poet Alice Notely’s assertion rings true for “State of Disobedience” an exhibition that brings together works in a range of media by Matthew Ronay, Barkley Hendricks, Mary Ellen Mark, Patty Chang, Glenn Ligon, and others.
