Selected works from the a/political collection, curated by Franko B.
Opening reception – 6 October at 6pm
Curated by pioneering performance and visual artist Franko B, HOW TO SAY IT THE WAY IT IS! marks the first exhibition of selected works from the a/political collection, opening at Rua Red Gallery, South Dublin. The exhibition initiates the forthcoming programme of Rua Red’s new Director Maolíosa Boyle and the yearlong partnership with a/political.
At a time when history is eating itself, bloated off war and genocide, we look towards its nuclear death. HOW TO SAY IT THE WAY IT IS! provides an alternative narrative to the current political status quo – one of timeless defiance, resistance and disorder – from some of the most influential socially and politically engaged contemporary artists.
The exhibition will feature works by: Franko B; Petr Davydtchenko; Democracia; Kendell Geers; Leon Golub; John Heartfield; IRWIN; Peter Kennard; kennardphillipps; Barbara Kruger; Oleg Kulik; Andrei Molodkin; Gustav Metzger; Shirin Neshat; Arsen Savadov; Andres Serrano; Santiago Sierra and Ai Weiwei, many of whom have never shown in Ireland before.
