2011 has been a year of rebellion. This year has seen long-standing monarchs overthrown in Egypt and Libya and mass protests for calling change in the economic-political power structure in Europe and the United States, most notably in Occupy Wall Street movement. Dissent at this level has not been seen since the late 1960’s, where protesters developed both nonviolent and more radical protest techniques that are still used in today’s struggles.
Young people in particular are standing up and using their voice, and in times of social turmoil and political upheaval art can be used as a powerful and emotional communicative tool. In recognition of these calls for change, The Art of Rebellion features politically-fueled artwork of varying of mediums and viewpoints selected from an open call to currently enrolled students.
