Across the globe, political uprisings have brought an increased focus to the relationship between art and politics. Though creative resistance is nothing new, contemporary artists and activists have built upon the longstanding legacy of cultural organizing and social movement. Curated by Raquel de Anda, "Shattering the Concrete: Artists, Activists and Instigators" explores modern forms of art’s role in challenging the current political paradigm and fomenting political change.

The Round will present site-specific installations by seven artists and collectives, including The Argus Project (Gan Golan, Ligaiya Romero and Julien Terrell), Charge (Jennie Ash and Carrie Schneider), Nuria Montiel & John Pluecker, The Natural History Museum (a project of Not An Alternative), People’s Paper Co-op (Courtney Bowles and Mark Strandquist), Storyline Media (Rachel Falcone and Michael Premo), and Verbobala (Adam Cooper-Terán and Logan Phillips). From paper-making workshops that release people from the burden of criminal records to hybrid theatre that illuminates the realities of the border, the featured work highlights the critical role that artists play in current social justice movements.
