If you have not yet visited UCLA's Fowler Museum to see La Tinta Grita (The Ink Shouts), The Art of Social Resistance in Oaxaca, Sunday is unfortunately the final, but best day to do so. It is probably the most impactful art exhibit I've seen in L.A. this year. This morning, I met one of the artists from this brave collective who covered Oaxaca's streets with their woodblock and stenciled protest poster art during the recent times of government oppression and widespread violence following large labor and teacher protests. He told me he is personally leading a tour of the collection this Sunday, a special insight into the work and experience that should not be missed. The vital importance of print--propaganda, information from behind enemy lines, political satire, and protest art---in resistance to tyranny and past social movements can not be overstated. It is often the soul of a revolution or struggle. Go to the Fowler on Sunday at 2PM to see this phenomenal exhibit firsthand through the eyes and voice of one of its powerful featured artists.
