Freedom of Expression:
Political Art in an Age of Uncertainty
October 30 - December 15, 2008.
The exhibition Freedom of Expression: Art in an Age of Uncertainty brings together approximately 14 California artists whose work directly addresses political and social issues. The show will range from the powerful woodblock prints from Sandow Birk’s Depravities of War series to the satirical—but no less powerful—paintings and drawings of Enrique Chagoya. The exhibition will also include prints by the noted Los Angeles-based political artist Robbie Conal, a sculpture composed of guns, bullets, buckshot, and bone by Al Farrow, a new video work by the collaborative team of Jeanne C. Finley and John Muse, mixed media work by Mildred Howard, and a legendary “black painting” by the late artist Wally Hedrick that was made in protest of the Vietnam war.
