Special Event

In Protest

May 9, 2012; 7:00 p.m.

Gallery B

“How can the arts participate in a creative and collective production of our shared future? How can we make visible our shared concerns about the political landscape of this country?” Protest signs, posters and banners are some of the clearest manifestations of the visual language of political action. For this project, the Kadist Art Foundation, in collaboration with BAM/PFA, invited politically inclined artists and writers to make a protest poster that addresses specific events or generalized demands. Come view the results, join some of the artists in a wide-ranging conversation of protest, and take home a poster.

Posters designed by:
Zarouhie Abdalian
John Baldessari
Amy Balkin
Dodie Bellamy

Amy Franceschini
Doug Hall
Kevin Killian

Tony Labat
Shaun O'Dell
