New senior curator Shamim M. Momin has drawn on national and international connections with 14 older and younger artists attuned to social concerns that are revealed slowly and gradually in paintings, performances, installations, video and sculptures. Off-campus sites are also employed to play up the exhibition title. Shape-shifting from conventional painting to gigantic video installations, the survey displays how political issues can be presented obliquely and still make their point with great clarity and thoughtfulness.
