  • Left Coast: California Political Art

    Installation view of "Left Coast: California Political Art" with artworks by Futurefarmers, Precita Eyes Mural Collective, Andrew Schoultz, and Rigo 23.

    Left Coast: California Political Art includes artworks from the 1980s to the present that focus on the spirit of protest and resistance, which has come to be synonymous with the West Coast in recent years. The title of the exhibition takes its name from a playful moniker for the left-wing politics associated with California, a place that curator and art historian Peter Selz has referred to as “America’s edge.” By exploring how the roles of these artists cross into the realm of activism, the show brings to the fore timely political tensions and social movements that are unfolding across the country. The exhibition will feature sculptures, drawings, paintings, video and prints by several contemporary artists currently working in California, as well as newly commissioned works by Los Angeles-based artist Andrew Schoultz, the Bay Area-based mural collective Precita Eyes Mural Collective, and the international artist collective Futurefarmers, founded by San Francisco artist Amy Franceschini. Also included in the presentation are works by artists Judith F.

Mellon Curatorial Fellow. - See more at: http://centerforthehumanities.org/program/left-coast-california-political-art#sthash.GOHr5XU5.dpuf Read more
