The artists in Hopeless and Otherwise address our contemporary conception of American identities within the context of our historic narratives and myths. They negotiate the current pervasive atmosphere of doom and powerlessness by venting their own rage or simply grappling with the feeling of being outsiders in this bizarre place we call home. Their explorations acknowledge the challenges and direness of our current situation, while persistently reframing and engaging alternative perspectives on being American.
