For The Painting Center’s annual juried exhibition, FIGHT OR FLIGHT, we asked artists how the turbulent political environment has affected their work. Did they become more politically active by fighting—protesting, calling representatives, writing letters or did they retreat into their studios to shut out the frenetic world? Or did they adopt some combination of both approaches? We received an outpouring of interesting and timely work, and it is our hope that this selection provides some insight into the psyches of artists responding to the times in which we live in 2017. This exhibition is in no way a comprehensive representation but rather a curated selection of work both political and apolitical. We hope that it provides a starting point for an important conversation.
