Resistance Is Fertile – Exhibition

RIF poster

Resistance is Fertile

6 – 28 June 2015
Preview: Friday 5 June 2015, 6-9pm

Resistance is Fertile is a timely exploration of protest and the art that it engenders. The exhibition brings together leading photographers, poets and protest artists that have highlighted social movements. The exhibition includes the Miners’ strike, environmental campaigns, Poll Tax demos and land rights. The exhibition not only examines how the act of protest inspires creativity but also looks at the plethera of visual patterns created by mass protest.

The exhibition includes a large installation of new 1.87 scale models for an on-going series of work, Riot in a Jam Jar, by artist Jimmy Cauty: “These ‘small world re-enactments’ depict past and future riots, reality blurred, all within a jam jar. The jam jar represents containment, violent disturbances served up in manageable doses like news bulletins; complex situations reduced to mantle piece ornaments.”

Resistance is Fertile also combines a stunning photography exhibit by some of the leading exponents of protest photography; including Tony Sleep‘s in depth documentation of Frestonia – the name adopted by the residents and squatters of Freston Road, London, when they attempted to secede from the UK in 1977.

Other contirbuting artists include: Jamie Reid, Billy Childish, Kate EvansEmily JohnsStigDavid HoffmanTony SleepJess HurdAlan LodgeAntonio OlmosJanine WiedelAndrew Testa, Zoe Broughton, Jason Parkinson, Gary Trotter, Nigel DickinsonJohn Sturrock, Martin Mayer, David Mansell and John Harris – Report Digital.

In addition, films, protest archive, workshops, performances and talks from leading practitioners will create a vibrant festival feel and bring together many groups with a forum for discussion. Please visit our Resistance is Fertile Events Page for a full programme. 

The exhibition is part of Low Carbon Oxford week.
