Amy O'Neill's impressive and varied body of work includes drawings, installations, sculptures, and videos which reference Americana, art history, and folk art. In this exhibition, O'Neill creates a super-sized environment filled with religious and cultural symbols that explore the American penchant for monumentalism in various forms. The exhibition's title, HLUSA, is an initialism referencing Holy Land USA, an abandoned 18-acre theme park in Waterbury, Connecticut. Amy O'Neill HLUSA will be on view until January 27, 2013, at The Swedish Institute of Contemporary Art, 18 Wooster Street  New York, NY
