“Simply put ‘dissent’ means to think or act in ways that are at variance with what is considered the norm.”
Below is a collection of Dissent inspired activities including pop-up initiatives, experimental exhibitions, symposiums, residencies, and periods of Associate led R&D. Our 'Associate Artist reading and writing group' recently resulted in an anthology of essays 'Dissent: A Creative Practice'.
Integral to dissent as a constructive process is the idea of inviting multiple, sometimes conflicting viewpoints to share a space. This notion of a dialogue between multiple vantage points inspired 'Chapters' our on-going dialogic project of collecting and archiving artwork and conversation in a CAS Chapter for further interpretation and response.
