An Incomplete History of Protest: 1940's to Now

1

After the Second World War, society learned that there are many things needed to be changed by the way authorities run their businesses -- from employers, high society, and politicians. This the incomplete history of protest, from the 1940's to now in art and photographs.

Artists and photographers alike have captured demonstration after another; from peace movements, anti-racial segregation, anti-Vietnam War, the AIDS crisis, etc. The exhibit will be divided into several categories: Resistance and Refusal, Strike, Boycott, Advocate, Space and Predicaments, Stop the War, No Idle Gesture, Mourning and Militancy, Abuse of Power, and The Usable Past.

All sought immediate change, hoping to move those in charge with their art, creativity, and criticism. Familar works of Gordon Parks, Larry Clark and The Guerilla Girls will be gracing the exhibit.

Significant support for An Incomplete History of Protest: Selections from Whitney’s Collection, 1940–2017 at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, on August 18. Incomplete, for there's always something to be angry of, always something to change.
