Wayne Gonzales features in 'America: Between Dreams and Realities'

Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, Quebec City, Canada

In collaboration with Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC, Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec presents ‘America: Between Dreams and Realities’, a group exhibition featuring over 100 paintings, photographs, sculptures, and video works by 82 artists drawn from the prestigious collection of the Hirshhorn Museum. This expansive survey offers a broad overview of modern and contemporary American art. Moving from the early twentieth-century through to the present day, it charts the evolving significance of social and political contexts to the making of art in America. 

The presentation includes ‘Pentagon’ by Wayne Gonzales, which depicts a satellite view of the Pentagon in Washington DC, the headquarters of America’s Department of Defence. The painting is part of a larger series that draws on photographic source imagery to explore the representation of American political and military power, from the White House to the assassination of JFK.
