Artists as Activists features artists who are responding to political oppression through their work. Seeking their own independent expression, they often inadvertently position themselves to oppose reigning doctrines during times when ruling powers are oppressing large segments of populations, even whole countries, from creating a more just and equitable future. The exhibit brings the works of internationally recognized contemporary artists to the NCSML, including Ai Weiwei, David Černý, Emily Jacir, Hong Hao, jc lenochan, Juanma Garcia, Malik Sajad, and Tania Bruguera; most which have never been on display in Iowa.

Sponsored in part by Western Fraternal Life.

    I might be interested in helping during the spring months—–but no more than twice a month. If that is not often enough I would have to forego the chance to help. I would like to take the training and then decide if it could fit my schedule. I am still working 2 days a week and I have commitments with the Czech School Board. Keep me posted.

    I was wondering if there is an update regarding what is going to happen with the internship program since I did receive the offer and accepted the position. I’d love to hear back about this and any remote work that could be done during the summer months or sooner if I am needed.
