Slought is pleased to announce

Resurgent Histories, Insurgent Futures

an exhibition about cultural guerrilla warfare from across the Americas,
on display September 7 - October 1, 2017.
Curated by Jennifer Ponce de León

The exhibition documents incisive instances of 
cultural guerrilla warfare from across the 
Americas: artistic practices engaged in struggles 
over political narratives, the meanings and 
direction of history, and the forging of 
collective futures. These experimental practices 
- which challenge codified conceptions of art - 
produce and disseminate culture in modes not 
beholden to state ideological apparatuses or the 
siloing of forms of knowledges these promulgate. 
Some of them also infiltrate official 
institutions and their representational 
protocols, using guerrilla tactics, critical 
mimicry, and biting irony to expose their 
sociopolitical functions or economic dealings 
that otherwise remain obscured.
