The Untitled Space, New York is hosting “One Year of Resistance,” a group exhibition presenting 80 artworks that reflect on President Trump’s first year in office.

The exhibition features works across diverse mediums by dozens of artists in response to the political climate in 45’s America. Examples include Alison Jackson’s work that depicts Trump wearing a Miss Mexico sash and standing before a spread-eagle naked woman on his desk in the Oval Office, and Touba Alipour’s “America,” a neon map of the US with the words Closed for Renovation, illuminating hostile immigration policies. Contemporary artists aged 18 to 80 from around the world have created these artworks that were inspired by such issues as racism, sexism, discrimination, health care, climate change, transgender rights, white supremacy, gender equality, and gun control, among others.

The majority of art displayed in the exhibition was created after Trump’s election and before he began his freshman term in office. Indira Cesarine, gallery director and artist, said, “Since the election, we have been confronted with extremes; living in a country which has become increasingly divisive and threatening to civil and human rights.” 

“One Year of Resistance” is on view through February 4, 2018 at The Untitled Space, New York, 45 Lispenard St #1w, New York, NY 10013, USA, noted the Daily News
