From a single sticky note at a subway stop to the largest one-day protest in U.S. history to mark Trump’s inauguration, expressions of public protest can take many forms, with art playing a crucial role. Artists Amy Khoshbin and Tania Bruguera, along with writer A.M. Homes, explore opportunities for creativity in activism, and detail their work, which shares themes of cultural and familial identity, immigration, and human fortitude under extreme duress. They delve into the collaborative project Word on the Street, curated by Khoshbin, and investigate the symbiotic relationship between art and social change. Moderated by Carmen Hermo Assistant Curator, Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum.
