Curated by Professor Jennifer Ponce de León, Resurgent Histories, Insurgent Futures documents incisive instances of cultural guerrilla warfare from across the Americas: artistic practices engaged in struggles over political narratives, the meanings and direction of history, and the forging of collective futures. These experimental practices – which challenge codified conceptions of art -- produce and disseminate culture in modes not beholden to state ideological apparatuses or the siloing of forms of knowledges these promulgate. Through aesthetico-political practices this exhibition charts different spaces across the Americas bringing into view commonalities in struggle, as well as lineaments of internationalist resistance.
It features the work of participating artists and groups Etcétera..., Grupo de Arte Callejero, Iconoclasistas, Fran Ilich, The Pocho Research Society for Erased and Invisible History, Sandra de la Loza, and Frente 3 de Fevereiro. The exhibition will be on display in the Slought galleries September 7 - October 1, 2017.
