WE SHALL OVERCOME: Art of Defiance and Resistance to Illicit Governance and Corporate Malfeasance

Posted on | February 18, 2017 | Comments Off on WE SHALL OVERCOME: Art of Defiance and Resistance to Illicit Governance and Corporate Malfeasance

This exhibition features works of art in all media which refer to power gone wrong and other social maladies, spanning a period from 1853 to 2017F. While the current political climate was obviously a catalyst for the show, it seemed important to look at the current fascistic situation in the context of the historically perpetual struggle of the people versus the power elite. Some of the art simply mirrors realities of the times, while others are biting satirical commentaries, and some offer paths out of the darkness.  An opening reception was held on Saturday, February 18th 4-7pm and the exhibition will run until April 15th, 2017.

Historical and contemporary artists include Catherine Daley, Honore Daumier, Francis DeErdely, Holly DowningMolly Eckler, Evelyn Glaubman, Karen Green, Oswaldo Guayasamin, Jean Halpert-Ryden, Edgar HarisArt Hazelwood, Tyler James Hoare, Jack Jones, Mary Fuller McChesney, Robert Pearson McChesneyMichael McMillan, Emmanuel Catarino Montoya, Thomas Nast, Irving Norman, Johanna PoethigGeorges Rouault, Jim SpitzerJan Stussy, Reese Thornton, June Wayne, The SF Poster Syndicate, and more..
