Asha Bell: Disrupting Quietude in Suburbia: Landscape Activism

Friday, September 24, 2021 at 8:00am to 4:30pm

Olive Tjaden Gallery, Tjaden Hall

Disrupting Quietude in Suburbia: Landscape Activism documents lawn signs in the small suburban town Nyack, New York. These signs are not radical political acts but rather a means of communication and, in some instances, a way to influence property values and community image. This project seeks to explore the contradictions within this sign-based communication and play with the notion of traditional suburbia, the picket fence, mowed lawns, American flags, and call them into question. Who lives in these houses, and what are their intentions behind putting up these signs? What is their authenticity? Who are they speaking to, and what are they saying?

Disrupting Quietude in Suburbia: Landscape Activism features work from Asha Bell (B.F.A '22).
