Despite Greenberg’s known disdain for patriarchal constructs, ‘Commentary & Dissent’ is a tongue-in-cheek reference to Jill Greenberg’s patrillineal history. Her husband’s grandmother was the managing editor of ‘Commentary’ during its progressive days, and her father-in-law was a contributor to ‘Dissent’. The images in this exhibition aggressively reassert the power of the image to confront and attack the viewer, and affirm Greenberg’s parctice as a transgressive, yet Pop, artist. The exhibit comprises several parallel series and related works. The largest project represented is ‘everyonehateseveryone’. Whereas some of Greenberg’s previous series showed animals to have human personalities, these depict people behaving like animals.
