- What’s On
Kuad Gallery’s timely exhibition explores how distrust in governments can result in increased partisanship, civil unrest and even revolution.
Curated by Max Presneill and Gül Çağın, the exhibiting artists delve into popular social movements such as Occupy, Anonymous and Wikileaks, often with humour or an interesting twist. In his work ‘Censored #1–#6’ (below), Roni Feldman creates portraits of people who have been censored in the United States despite the country’s reputation as the ‘freest nation on Earth’. If you look at the work front on, all you can see are small black rectangles, yet on the correct angle, the faces of figures such as Anne Frank, Toni Morrison and Julian Assange become visible.
The participating artists are Gül Çağın, Sam Durant, Tracey Emin, Roni Feldman, Nicolas Grenier, Kio Griffith, William Kaminski, Jay Lizo, Marcos Lutyens, Claudia Parducci, Chad Person, Max Presneill and Shaun Gladwell.
