Anguish and Enthusiasm: What Do You Do With Your Revolution Once You’ve Got It
Revolutions often serve as landmark shifts in the history of nations, people and causes. But after the upheaval it is a country’s post-revolutionary period that reveals most about its prospects for change.
Anguish and Enthusiasm: What Do You Do With Your Revolution Once You’ve Got It considers the complex situations that arise after a revolution has taken place. This moment is frequently overlooked, but is often crucial in determining the likelihood of change. Curators Declan Clarke and Sarah Perks present work that ruminates on the complexities of this situation, offering new perspectives on what post-revolution could mean, and how it affects those who live through it.
11 international artists and an artist collective are represented in this group show which includes four new commissions.
