Event Description

Torrance Art Museum (TAM) is pleased to present Protest, noun, a group exhibition of politically oriented artists making work critically challenging the present. Curated by Max Presneill.

Protest, noun gives space and voice to a select group of Los Angeles–based artists who share an urgent and political drive to engage the character of our moment through their art practices. Through their work, these artists produce bodies of work that critically engage social and political currents running through our society. This social and political critique is conducted via a pronounced materiality whereby objecthood announces its structural relationship to meaning and content.

 

The current political climate has seen civil unrest and debased interactions, particularly on social media, which have increasingly polarized our society. This exhibition attends to some of the more pressing issues for California artists: Immigration, homelessness, income inequity and justice inequality, climate change and resource allocation. The links between these aspects of contemporary life have been recognized, the need to address them immediate.

This exhibition provides a forum for these artists’ criticisms and allows a space of free and critical engagement with our society.
