“The Arts of Resistance” is an exhibition of two and three dimensional visual art, installation, performance, poetry, song and music exploring art-making in the spectrum of social commentary and political action.  The belief that artists are historically proven as intrinsic to the change and progression of culture and politics in ways spanning from contemplation to propaganda, is central to the works in the show.  

In this moment, as events and beliefs spin wildly round the planet and close to home, “The Arts of Resistance” exhibition asks:  “How does resistance relate to community through art?  What is resistance in art?”
