A group exhibition of political art and art made political by its context, with works by: Ryan Arthurs, Elaine Bay, Chitra Ganesh, Mariam Ghani, Raúl Gonzalez III & IV, Jenny Holzer, Steve Locke, Joiri Minaya, Toyin Ojih Odutola, Dread Scott, Lorna Simpson, and William Villalongo Political Discourse is a group exhibition that highlights criticality in contemporary art through the voices of artists belonging to marginalized groups of people in America. This exhibition presents a diverse set of perspectives on American culture and politics, celebrating the creations and expressions of under-represented members of our society. With artworks from emerging, mid-career, and established artists working in the US, Political Discourse brings together artists from the LGBTQ community, artists of color, immigrant artists, and female artists. This exhibition is organized by UMass Boston’s new Gallery Curator, Samuel Toabe.
