ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

 

Visualizing Protest: The Art of Resistance

 

Protests have long been a social tool by which to mobilize groups of people around shared grievances, allowing them to collectively interrogate power structures and enact change through the discursive processes of resistance. Protests have been an important moment at which resistance enters public space and gains broader visibility. Some forms of protest, such as riots, can even erupt spontaneously and result in alternative discourses that undermine the original aims of the protestors.

 

This exhibition thus seeks to explore the role of visual production around protests. It will consider such questions as: How do we understand the relationship between what is visible/invisible or public/private in collective forms of resistance? How does artwork and new media shape, interrogate, or blur these distinctions? How does the visual response to protests and resistance movements by artists memorialize and historicize the events? Do new technologies change the nature of protests, resistance movements, and how they are mobilized? If so, how we understand them visually? What is the role of audience? What is the role of visual imagery produced by resistance groups themselves?

 

The curator of this exhibition seeks a small group of artists working in a wide range of media whose work critically engages with and responds to ideas around resistance and protest. Work can focus on recent events within the United States as well as be historically situated or centered on other regions. Selected artwork will be exhibited in Stamp Gallery in the Adele H. Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park.

Stamp Gallery Presents: Mirrored Re-Collection

posted on November 02, 2018

Mirrored Re-Collection
Sobia Ahmad + Sepideh Salehi
On view November 1 - December 15, 2018
Opening Reception: November 1, 5 - 7PM
Featuring an interactive exhibit concerning the recent 'Muslim ban'

In this exhibition, the artists examine issues related to national identity and belonging, cultural memory, the notion of home, and gender. They incorporate aspects of storytelling and weave their personal histories into broader cultural fabrics, the two often intersecting in difficult ways. Their work prompts us to consider: What is the relationship between personal narrative and larger structures of power? How do artists, especially women, use their work to navigate complex political and social terrains?

Sobia Ahmad
About the artist: Sobia Ahmad dissects how social, cultural, and political forces shape personal narratives and community experiences. A strong believer in the power of art for social change, Ahmad explores how our deeply intimate struggles of identity and belonging can inform larger conversations about fluidity of self, womanhood, and activism. She is currently serving as the 2018-2019 recipient of the Next Generation/Sanctuary Studio Fellowship at VisArts in Maryland. 

Sepideh Salehi
About the artist: By incorporating aspects of storytelling and letter writing, Salehi recollects the experiences she had growing up in post-1979 Tehran. She weaves personal narrative and cultural history into her work, reflecting on the ways in which she, and other women, navigated the shifting social and political landscapes. She also explores the idea of home and longing that she felt after leaving Tehran. Ultimately she uses her work to understand how her life was marked and shaped by these different events, and to reflect on them more generally.
