“America” ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE artwork by Touba Alipour
One Year of Resistance Opening Tuesday, January 16 at The Untitled Space, 6 pm to 9 pm. On view through February 4.
Though it feels like several eternities, it’s been about a year since Trump was inaugurated. A large array of artists have been asked to channel their rage and other such emotions into their work, resulting in the wide spread that is One Year of Resistance, a group show at The Untitled Space in Tribeca. This gallery is no stranger to art that responds to the current political climate; the month of the 2017 inauguration they presented group exhibition Uprise / Angry Women. For One Year of Resistance, which serves as a follow-up to Angry Women, curator and gallery director Indira Cesarine has asked over 80 artists of all genders to contribute work inspired by “the controversial policies and practices of our current president.” The work ranges from literal depictions of Trump to more symbolic renderings of #resistance. Can you believe it’s only been a year? More →
One of the most eye-grabbing things we saw at Select art fair — aside from Michael Alig’s prison paintings and Junglepussy’s rooftop set, of course — was this rendering of Williamsburg by Amsterdam-based artist Jan Rothuizen. It was part of “Mapping Brooklyn,”. an exhibit of old maps and the map-driven work of contemporary artists that appeared at BRIC House and the Brooklyn Historical Society. While part of the exhibit remains on view at the Historical Society, this creation and others are on display at Select through the weekend.
