"Rear Window: An Image of God: Michael Lebron"
Date
November 23 - December 23 1985
Description

"Michael Lebron's new work, An Angel of God, throws clear light on the nature and motivation of this element of contemporary iconography. His work- which resembles an appeal for aid poster-confronts the three concepts central to understandmg these images and their use: advertising, religion , and foreign aid. What is more. he makes clear that these concerns, in their broad application, have more relevance to the preconditions and perpetuation of poverty in Latin America than the more specific reasons frequently cited, such as poor economic planning, inadequate technology, or natural disasters."
