Columbia University’s Wallach Art Gallery is excited to welcome guests back into its physical space for the first time since March 2020 with “The Protest and The Recuperation.” The exhibition is a survey of artistic perspectives and responses on the global phenomenon of mass protest, as well as recuperative strategies of resistance. In these times, contemporary art has the capacity to focus our attention in different ways, focusing on what we learn from various media sources, or even our own experiences of protest.
This exhibition presents a selection of works that register the power of mass protest from a deeply human perspective. It highlights the individual-to-individual connection in the collective spaces of mass protest, recovery, and care.
You can experience the exhibit in the gallery on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Reserve a time for your experience here: https://wallach.columbia.edu/
