Jan. 30-Feb. 21: Art & Politics: See It Now!
January 22, 2013
This exhibition takes an international, intergenerational and interdisciplinary look at the way these well-known artists comment on, perceive and provoke political action. From the October Revolution through Tiananmen Square to the Arab Spring, artists in this show have appropriated primary and secondary source material from film, photographs and newspapers in order to create compelling visual images. They have explored a variety of methodologies including painting, collage, printmaking, photography, excision, and digital manipulation. Come see this exhibition and join in the dialogue these prominent artists have initiated.
Artists: Joyce Kozloff, Dread Scott, Robin Tewes, Barbara Westermann, Shanti Grumbine, Tatiana Istomina, Anna Elise Johnson and Elliott Arkin.
A display of agitprop graphic art in the adjoining Hewitt Black and White Gallery East complements this exhibition.
