The Artist As Witness: Elise Engler, Michael Caron, Ryan Carpenter, Nancy Chunn, Sue Coe, Lee Jupina Sr., Käthe Kollwitz, Michael Reddick, Rowan Renee is now available for booking.
The Artist as Witness presents a group of artists whose work has a laser focus on conflict and suffering, commentaries on injustice, and provoking social change.
This exhibition brings together nine artists working from the 1930s to today. Each artist produces consciously political art in response to specific events, or circumstances; their work is characterized by figurative representations of people and actions. They return often to the same image or theme over and over again, to accumulate evidence and solidify their commentary. The Artist as Witness informs the ways we understand the ethical imperative to witness. It provides a bracing reminder of the danger inherent in being a politically committed artist who feels compelled to speak about what she sees.
