#makeamericagreatagain is a group exhibition of diverse media that will run during February and coincide with the initial Democratic and Republican primaries.  The exhibition’s title is culled verbatim from Donald Trump’s campaign slogan. Appropriation does not stop there, however, for #makeamericagreatagain thematically rubs up against the demagoguery prevalent in the current American social and political landscape and rhetoric espoused by primary candidates to engender fear in the American public.

The appropriated hashtag also serves as curatorial device to further expand the exhibition into social media. The exhibition-viewing public and those not physically present to see the show, will be asked to upload images or texts with the hashtag of #makamericagreatgain onto Twitter, Instagram or Facebook. These contributions will become part of the exhibition and will be interventions into existing social media sites with the same hashtag.

Curated by Raul Zamudio and Juan Puntes / Co-curated by Blanca de la Torre
