Featuring both historical and contemporary works, the exhibition shows artists examining the socio-political issues of their day, including migration, censorship and struggles for equality and democracy
The exhibition begins with 1936 painting Nazis Murder Jews by Alice Neel, which shows a Communist party torchlight parade on the streets of New York City. It then examines the power of words from slogans, graffiti, signs and newspaper stories, including Doug Aitken’s Free, created this year using mirrors to turn the word into an ever shifting experiences.
