SubRosa: The Language of Resistance Exhibition

Event Type: Exhibition
Facility: Contemporary Art Museum
Presented By: USF Institute for Research in Art
Description: 
SubRosa: The Language of Resistance will examine the art and language of artists in response to social, political, and environmental repression. Although the political agency of art is regularly 
debated, there is a growing group of artists today who make work with political agency and relevancy in mind. Covering continents and cultures, these artists share a desire to question dominant political 
systems and the prevalent status quo, sometimes covertly and dangerously. More broadly, SubRosa, titled for the Latin phrase meaning secrecy, poses several questions about the role of art in political 
life. Artists include Ai Weiwei (China), José Toirac and Meira Marrero (Cuba), Barbad Golshiri (Iran), Ramón Esono Ebalé (Equatorial Guinea), Khaled Jarrar (Palestine), and Zanele Muholi (South Africa) 
and media include photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, video and graphics.
