Zeina Baltagi: Sell Me the American Dream

2287 Grove Ave., Sacramento, CA 95815
In her experimental installation, Sell Me the American Dream, Zeina Baltagi uses plaster, metallic leaf, pennies, and sound to reveal the fractured existence of life as a friend, a sister, the daughter of first generation parents, and a person living under capitalism. Identity, self, and labor necessarily duplicate and fragment, revealing a life lived in multiple and intermingled tracks, and where time is spent laboring for culture, community, and livelihood.
