(Re)Action: Art, Politics, and Social Critique in the United States

April 8, 2021May 24, 2021 EDT

Shaffer Art Building, Shaffer Art Building

This exhibition draws from the Syracuse University Art Museum’s rich collection of art that critically engages with social and political issues. Over the last several years, protest movements like #MeToo and Black Lives Matters have created widespread public awareness of systemic inequity and injustice, leading to social change.

This timely exhibition examines how U.S. artists over the last hundred years have addressed racism, sexism, homophobia, state-sanctioned violence, and media control. (Re)Action features renowned modern and contemporary artists, including Carrie Mae Weems, Andy Warhol, Ben Shahn, Kara Walker, Barbara Morgan, Amos Paul Kennedy, among others. Curated by Associate Professor Sascha Scott and art history graduate students

At this time, in person visits are limited to Syracuse University & SUNY-ESF students, faculty, and staff only.
