Liliana Bloch Gallery will present Summer School, a group exhibition that addresses the current state of decline and entanglement in the American education system. As the most powerful country in the world the U.S. is reversing critical thinking and crippling young Americans financially.

The United States currently ranks 17th in the world with Finland, South Korea and Hong Kong being the top three. The commonality between the aforementioned countries is a constitutional right of education for their citizens aside from political affiliations. This fosters a collective consciousness of progress, constructive questioning and distinction.

However, in the United States education is controlled by politics This creates programs that serve political and private agendas and priorities that increases polarization, destroying the facilitation of advancement. The exhibition presents a global perspective on these issues from national and international artists including Latin America and Asia.

Participating artists include Mayra Barraza, Tim Best, Du Chau, Ryan Goolsby, Letitia Huckaby, Vince Jones, Kathy Lovas, Leigh Merrill, Mi-Hee Nahm, Laray Polk and Ryan Sarah Murphy.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through September 6.
