littlefield proudly announces Your Story Is Not Our Story – an art show featuring works by Kenneth Pietrobono. This exhibit will run through April 29th.
Kenneth Pietrobono is a young image-maker based in Queens, New York. Primarily working in photography, his work crosses multiple medias and focuses on social and political commentary.
His current show subverts the stylings of American folk art and Americana. Comprised of photographs, textiles, paintings, ephemera and audience participation, his work reject the story of American exceptionalism and the myths it promotes as different from the actual American experience. Using the nostalgia and familiarity of these traditions, truths are reinforced rather than the idealism commonly associated with them and exploited by the political machine.
