Unrest: Art, Activism & Revolution

September 19 - November 23, 2014
Curator Rachel Moore

Artists have been at the forefront of revolutions for centuries, producing work that has an immediate political impact, or is responding to civil unrest. This exhibition takes its inspiration from the Arab Spring...


Unrest: Art, Activism & Revolution looks at the impact that artists have on political and social reform in countries like Egypt, Yemen, Israel, Palestine, Iran, and the United States. Unrest looks at artists as activists, revolutionaries and visionaries.
