Join us for The Art of Resistance: Visions and Voices of Change, a co-presentation by the Rose Art Museum and Cambridge Forum. In this virtual program, artist Peter Sacks will discuss his artistic practice and what led him to pivot away from abstract canvases to create a new series of symbolic and figurative portraits. Sacks will also discuss his current exhibition at the Rose, Peter Sacks: Resistance.
The exhibition, the artist’s first solo museum show, presents Sacks’s new series of eighty-eight portraits of individuals who have resisted cultural, political, or racial oppression around the globe. In addition, the exhibition features Sacks’s first-ever auditory artwork—a digital-audio collage featuring the voices of contemporary literary, political, and social figures who recite writings by the resistors featured in the show.
This program will be hosted online via Zoom webinar. Registration is required.
