Exhibition: Art of Politics at The Albuquerque Museum

"Art of Politics" explores how a diverse array of artists throughout recent American history have used images to raise awareness about sociopolitical concerns, generate discourse, and even spark action. Unrestrained by specific style or medium, the works in this exhibition examine a variety of issues, uncovering complex intersections between art and political engagement. Included are Dan Budnik’s documentary photographs of 1960s civil rights protests; an Ester Hernández silkscreen laying bare complexities of social identity; a starkly existential woodblock print by Leonard Baskin; and Patrick Nagatani’s poignant takedown of the madness of nuclear weapons, among many other works.

"The variety of identities, places, and cultures included in the show will demonstrate the similarities and connections between seemingly separate struggles," says Ben Maseman, who is curating the show and is also a senior at Amy Biehl High School.

This exhibition contains challenging content.

On view in Albuquerque Museum's Angelique + Jim Lowry Gallery for Works on Paper.


Event Cost: $1. - $4. Per Person
