Artful Protest: Creative Expression and the Umbrella Movement
Friday, April 29, 2016 - Saturday, May 14, 2016
The 2014 Hong Kong demonstrations, now known as the Umbrella Movement inspired a community of makers. Using art as protest, participants worked across various media, including photography, installation, text, performance, film, and illustration. Artful Protest: Creative Expression and the Umbrella Movement brings together photography and mixed media to highlight the commonalities of social justice movements across generations and around the globe.
This exhibit is co-sponsored by the Center for Public Humanities, Creative Arts Council, and the Office of Global Engagement at Brown.
