Info |

Meet Jenie Gao and learn more about her work. In "Survival Tools", a site-specific installation, Madison artist and printmaker Jenie Gao focuses on two main subjects: the gundog and the bulldog. One represents war and violence, and the other protest and speech. Both subjects are fighting for their right to live. Gao believes that the common denominator behind current discussions about technology, war, human rights, and climate change revolve around what people believe is necessary to "survive" in this world and in the future—even if their ideas differ on possible solutions. Gao believes creativity is about connecting different ideas, people, and perspectives to find shared purpose to solve problems.
