On now at NYC’s The Untitled Space, coinciding with the anniversary of Donald Trump’s inauguration, the group show ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE features the work of 80+ artists—each of whom created pieces that celebrate art as activism, but also focus on various issues that US citizens are facing. Curated by Indira Cesarine (who also has work in the show), the exhibition explores everything from women’s and transgender rights to climate change, gun control, white supremacy, and more. Aptly, the artists themselves are from all backgrounds, ages and genders—but what binds them is protest and solidarity in the face of the current administration.
Works exist across several mediums—from neon sign art to paintings, sculpture and photography—and a portion of each artwork sold goes to the ACLU. Touba Alipour’s “Closed for Renovation” greets visitors immediately. The walls within the space are completely covered. Jen Dwyer’s “Objects of Mass Protection” (a sculpture of two porcelain boxing gloves), Alison Jackson’s “Donald Trump with Miss Mexico,” and Michele Pred’s “My Body My Business” (a vintage purse embellished with electroluminescent wire) are all standouts.
