Uniforms for the End of Time IV
curated by Nicholas Cueva
Born in a politically vibrant time (2019-2021) the series of shows is an attempted reflection on our desire to be a part of certain teams and to be identified with certain causes and classes. The title “Uniforms for the End of Time” is a reference to the overall dread many felt during the pandemic. Many religious persons saw these times through the light of their ideas of an apocalypse. Even many non-believers felt there was some movement towards some eschaton. This show, with some humor, imagines an army of love and hope standing against the many who would take the power in the fear of these times and use it for their own end.
The show Uniforms for the End of Time IV is the fourth in this show’s series. It consists of a small group show by a variety of artists with a component of artist made tee shirts being available. The show is made open to conversation and is allowed to shift and change as the times demand.
During the pandemic many artists’ lost jobs and financial stability. This series of shows was created to get artists some smaller and easier sales, while also providing space for art conversation in a time of social and societal confusion.
