THE SUB-MISSION is pleased to present To Win and To Hold, a two-person exhibition of Liz Ensz and Jeremiah Jones. Ensz and Jones examine themes of American history; theories of the sublime; and representations of morality, power, and freedom. To Win And To Hold presents a comparative study of American mythologies and contemporary conditions by contrasting an ingrained hopeful promise and an expansionist ethos. Working in animation, film, print, and sculpture, Ensz and Jones’ site-specific installation in THE SUB-MISSION is a multi-media collage of existential musings and a proposal for the subversion of capitalism’s monopoly on optimism.
To Win and To Hold opens Friday, January 10 and will be on view through Saturday, February 22, 2014. An opening reception will be held Friday, January 10 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
