“Aleksandra Stone: Stimulate the American Household” at Monica King Contemporary, New York

As New York entered lockdown, and many young artists became hyper-aware of how current events were limiting their ability to make and sell their work, photographer Aleksandra Stone turned to money as a medium, finely shredding US currency and using it to make intricate collage works. A critique of the federal stimulus package, the exhibition is meant to illustrate the shortcomings of the one-time payments to taxpayers—and the mortgage relief for homeowners without any freeze on rent—who are struggling to support their households during this difficult time.
