Artist Steve Pavey at Phantom Place Project Space (Latitude)

Latitude Artist Community Steve Pavey at Phantom Space Project Space (Latitude) until September 10


My art critically explores power & inequality at the nexus of politics, economics and religion committed to envisioning/embodying social change bent towards justice. My art utilizes money, flags, and bible...s in an effort to grapple with the issues Martin Luther King, Jr. called the three great problems of society - Materialism, Militarism, & Racism.

“I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.
May 4, 1967 (one year before he was assassinated)
