“In Case of Emergency, Break Glass” is the first public presentation of an ongoing series of new artworks by artist and educator John Fields. These works utilize drawing, painting, video, printmaking, found-object sculptures, and mixed media materials to provide a darkly humorous and critical examination of our country’s current cultural crisis at the intersection of Christian Nationalism and unchecked capitalism.
