Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade by Daniel Green, 2018, mixed media on cardboard, 19.75 x 26 inches

We are excited to announce that seven works by Daniel Green will be included in 140 Characters at Root Division.

Curated by Lauren Etchells and Margaret Timbrell, 140 Characters examines the role of text-based art within contemporary society and its relationship to continually changing technologies and forms of communication. Text-based art is inherently in contrast between the explicit and the ambiguous; text conveys specific ideas while the ambiguity of language often leaves itself open to interpretation.

Various social media platforms allow participants to craft personal brands and find 24-hour audiences, which significantly affect the way we choose to communicate and take in information. This group exhibition questions how new technologies and various social media influence creative production, as well as highlight the ways in which we connect and communicate with one another. The exhibition will feature 20 artists with a range of mediums and disciplines.

Participating artists include: Anh Bui, Julia Chamberlain, Jamee Crusan, Rodney Ewing, Ashley Fitzpatrick, Theresa Giammattei, Daniel Green, Porpentine Heartscape, Maya Kabat, John Lindsey, Shirin Makaremi, Jenna Meacham, Avital Meshi, Guo Mong, Rebecca Ora, Blanca Estela Rodríguez, Brian Singer, Sayaka Suzuki, Christopher Taylo, and Jake Weigel
