Curated by Mark Chamberlain, BC Space Gallery is proud to present a mixed media exhibition, Capital Crime$. Capital Crime$ is intended to reveal the enormously destructive role that money--and the power it wields--increasingly play in our culture.
Historian Thomas Frank has sounded the alarm loudly and often. In "It's a Rich Man's World," his April 2012 essay for Harper's Magazine, Frank writes, "Over the course of the past few decades, the power of concentrated money has subverted professions, destroyed small investors, wrecked the regulatory state, corrupted legislators en masse, and repeatedly put the economy through the wringer. Now it has come for our democracy itself."
The question we asked these artists was: Do you have anything to say about this dire situation and would you like to add your voice to the debate?
