For the Fourth of July, Jessica Fuentes and William Sarradet discuss recent Texas exhibitions in which artists made work about what it means to be an American.
“The act of taking apart the American flag and reconstructing it is an act of an artist using their First Amendment right…and shows how fortunate we are to be in a country where we can make those kinds of statements.”
