"Currents: Candace Hill-Montgomery"
August 7 - September 22 1982
"We live in polarization, poverty, racism, violence, brutalization and social fragmentation. The brutalization that is done in the name of America, here and elsewhere in the world, could not continue if one could change the passivity and the people' s power to ignore or disregard the dehumanization of the third world peoples. I want the viewer to feel what it is like to be alive and constantly under siege!"
Candace Hill-Montgomery, quoted in Lynn Gumpert, exhibition brochure.
