Are there plans for the completed exhibition ? Will it remain online for a period of time ? Will there be a physical presentation someday ? The project will remain on-line indefinitely . We have not discussed a physical exhibit for this project , although we may have events where the exhibit is projected on walls in communities around the country . But right now , we are focused on making this the best and most comprehensive exhibit of work expressing the moment of turmoil , hope and action for racial justice and equity .
Deciding whether to take a stand or political view can often be difficult for an artist . Have we reached a point in which artists feel compelled to take a stand on racism without fear for how it may affect their audience ? Or is taking a stand still a risk for artists ? Every individual has their own notion of risks and concerns about how their community or the marketplace will respond to their work . But generally , most art is political in some way . Art has always been an essential element of social change and resistance to oppression . Art Against Racism provides another platform for artists to share their visions and to build a larger community of likeminded artists .
