Rob Benner: Trans/mission 101

May 17, 2017 to September 30, 2017

Equal parts activist and artist, Ron Benner combines photography and installation, often in the form of site-specific installation. Through these means, Benner reflects on the histories of oppression that intersect with the corporatization of our food sources. Central to Benner’s work is the concept of the vector. In mathematics, a vector is understood to be a precise point along a direct path. In biology, however, a vector is a living organism that carries and transmits disease.
