D5 Gallery

RJ Berman & J Colao

The Robert Berman Gallery has designated our D5 gallery at Bergamot Station Arts Center in Santa Monica, California, for an exhibit entitled "Change America." This collection of political art explores the momentum for renewed hope and the promise of America, emphasizing the theme of change. It also is an indictment against the arrogance of power and overt corruption by an administration that has weakened the Constitution and threatened Democracy.

The power of art is compelling. It challenges people to think and to act at important times. This is such a time, to effect change that America so desperately needs.

On view will be works by Banksy, Richard Serra, Andy Warhol, Raymond Pettibon, Robert Rauschenberg, Ron English, Shepard Fairy, Jim Shaw, Robbie Conal, Dietrich Wegner, Gomez Bueno, Britt Ehringer, Robert Indiana, Kerr+Malley, Arnold Mesches, Antony Micallef, David Trulli, Daniel Martinez, RJ Berman, J Colao, Michele Pred, Ellwood T. Risk, Cameron Gray, Bill Barminski, Vanessa Prager & others
