    Curated by AJ Liberto and Kate True including the work of Seth Alverson, Nick Cave, Robert Colescott, Marcus Kenney, Eli Kessler, AJ Liberto, Clifford Owens, Joyce Pensato, Tara Sellios, Summer Wheat. Upsodown celebrates the transformative power of the carnival. People have always sought respite from the hierarchies of caste, race, and gender. Social convention, mass media, urban planning, and religious and political power structures reinforce restrictions on our behavior and attitudes. The carnival turns these restrictions inside out and upside down, encouraging rebirth and reinvention. Constricting forces are temporarily thrown over in a time of raucous celebration.
