Ehren Tool: Meditation on the Impacts of War, an exhibition curated by Teresa Goodman and Ralph Vázquez-Concepción, on view at 2291 3rd St. from January 16 – February 13, 2016

The exhibition addresses the origins of Tool’s investigation of war iconography through the exhibition of the artist’s ceramics, video work, graphic prints, ephemera, as well as works done in collaboration with photographer Ian Martin. Aiming to foster public conversation about the relationship between mainstream culture and military culture in the United States, Meditation on the Impacts of War invites public exchange on a subject which affects contemporary global society and which pervades modern culture. From toys and video games to multimillion dollar movie productions and advertising, the grim reality of war has been adopted for entertainment. For more information, please go to Cranium Corporation.
