Time Out says

Artspace's ambitious, year-long program has been turned into an exhibition

What do you get when you combine 52 artists from 31 countries and give them each a week to make a statement about an issue that concerns them, sharing it with audiences online? You get the ambitious, year-long project that is 52 Artists, 52 Actions. Hailing from a wide range of ethnicities and cultural backgrounds, and from countries as diverse as Bangladesh, Korea, Turkey and Australia and the Pacific, the project, which began in January 2018, aims to generate a continuously unfolding archive of creative responses to political and social issues, and inspire audiences to consider how art has the power to invoke change. The resulting exhibition opens at Artspace on May 18.
