Subliminal Projects throws an opening art party on February 11, 2023, from 7-10pm to celebrate “Visual Language: The Art of Protest.” Email to RSVP to attend the artist reception.

The group exhibition and survey spotlights the symbiotic relationship between art and activism. Visual Language is an ongoing project curated in collaboration with Coates & Scarry, that aims to investigate and spark dialogue about how art acts as a vehicle of communication.

The historic alliance between art and protest, in its many manifestations, is rooted in the understanding that effective change begins with a cultural shift. Visual Language: The Art of Protest, is an investigation of how art serves as a societal crux between dissent and action.

For the exhibition’s duration, 10% of all proceeds will be donated to Amnesty International, a global non-governmental organization focused on human rights, and Inner-City Arts, a Los Angeles-based educational space empowering children, teens, and the community through the transformational power of art.

Artists include: Andrea Bowers (Vielmetter Los Angeles), Awanle Ayiboro Hawa Al (Emergeast), Barbara Kruger (Spruth Magers), Cey AdamsCheryl DunnChristopher MartinDavid Shrigley (Stephen Friedman Gallery), Ed RuschaEl Seed, Emory Douglas,  Gary Taxali, Gordon CheungGuerrilla Girls, Hana Shahnavaz (Emergeast), Leila Pazooki (Emergeast), Lina Puerta, Maya Hayuk,  Pussy Riot (Nadya Tolokonnikova)Penny ByrneRenee CoxRobbie ConalRon EnglishSalah Elmur (Vigo Gallery), Shepard FaireyStan Squirewell (Claire Oliver Gallery), and Juana Valdez (Spinello Projects).
