SubRosa: The Language of Resistance

August 26 – December 7, 2013
USF Contemporary Art Museum

SubRosa examines the language of art across continents and cultures in response to social, political, and environmental repression. Sometimes covertly and dangerously, the artists in SubRosa share a desire to question dominant political systems and the cultural status quo. Artists include Ai Weiwei (China), Ramón Esono Ebalé (Equatorial Guinea), Barbad Golshiri (Iran), Khaled Jarrar (Palestine), Zanele Muholi (South Africa), and José Toirac and Meira Marrero (Cuba). Curated by Noel Smith; Organized by USFCAM; Made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, and supported by the USF Institute on Black Life and EG Justice.
