Resurgent Histories, Insurgent Futures: an exhibition about cultural guerrilla warfare from across the Americas
"Resurgent Histories, Insurgent Futures" features politically-engaged and experimental art and cinema produced since 2000 by artists and collectives from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico and the U.S. The works in the exhibition challenge traditional notions of art and extend into other types of practice, including activism, gaming, and public history. They include an anticolonial alternate reality game, collectively-produced maps that document the effects of big industries on people and the environment, guerrilla memorials to "invisible histories" of Los Angeles, performances that fuse street theater and activism, and poetic acts of protest against racism.
