Cross the Party Line
The W Hotel Washington. Washington D.C., USA.
January 2016 - March 2017
Canadian artist Burnstein applied his analog collage technique to Cross the Party Line, combining the modern D.C. landscapes of local D.C. photographs with historical images of presidential figures.
Given the polarization that the 2016 presidential campaign inspired, some artists have shied away from commenting on Trump’s controversial victory, let alone creating an entire show around it.
Burnstein, however, said he was moved to offer “an unbiased perspective of the current dialogue,” as he called it through his exhibit Cross the Party Line. “The exhibit, in partnership with the W Washington D.C., is about showing a bipartisan view on America’s presidential history.”
