On Protest, Art and Activism explores differing ways artists engage the political and social issues of their time. Part 1—on view October 1–28— features works by Ja’Tovia Gary, Theaster Gates, Josephine Meckseper and Dread Scott. Part 2—on view November 2–December 19— features works by Hermine Freed, Guerrilla Girls, Suzanne Lacy, Howardena Pindell and Martha Rosler. Concurrent with Part 2, a site-specific installation of New No’s by Paul Chan with Badlands Unlimited is on view in the lobby of List Art Building.

These exhibitions are part of For Freedoms50 State Initiative, a non-partisan, nationwide campaign to use art as a means of inspiring civic participation in advance of the 2018 midterm elections.
