Event Description

Learn about the Artists as Activists exhibit from its curator, Charlotta Kotik, and see it virtually before it closes on September 20. This exclusive online event includes a live presentation by Charlotta Kotik on Wednesday, September 16, at 7:00 p.m. CDT and a tour of the exhibit with NCSML Curator Stefanie Kohn that you can access at any time. Purchase any of the four packages to attend.

Artists as Activists features artists who are responding to political oppression through their work. Seeking their own independent expression, they often inadvertently position themselves to oppose reigning doctrines during times when ruling powers are oppressing large segments of populations, even whole countries, from creating a more just and equitable future. The exhibit brings the works of internationally recognized contemporary artists to the NCSML, including Ai Weiwei, David Černý, Emily Jacir, Hong Hao, jc lenochan, Juanma Garcia, Malik Sajad, and Tania Bruguera; most which have never been on display in Iowa.
