MFA Thesis Exhibition: John R. Lewis "Metaxis: Collective Cognitive Dissonance by Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet

On View: March 31-April 6

Reception: March 31, 5-7 p.m.

The metamodern era of the early 21st century—the 4IR era—has many voices, many grand narratives, and new mythologies. My MFA Exhibition explores the metamodern discourse and intentional/unintentional metanarratives, as portrayed in artworks, which capture the worldviews of subpopulations within our internetworked globalized community. Metamodern artworks are heavily laden with the social psychology phenomena known as cognitive dissonance and collective cognitive dissonance. Perhaps the only way for mankind to endure is to face the realities of cognitive dissonances and press through into new horizons of the human psyche along with our algorithmic Artificial Intelligences.
