DE-MIL-I-TA-RISE: a new curbside + entryway exhibition

Art In These Times is excited to exhibit a new portfolio of prints by Justseeds in support of Dissenters and printed at Hoofprint in Chicago!

Dissenters is a movement organization leading a new generation of young people to reclaim resources from the war industry, reinvest in life-giving institutions, and repair collaborative relationships with the earth and people around the world. They are building local teams of young people across the country to force institutions to divest from war and militarism, and reinvest in what our communities actually need. From campuses to congress, they are building grassroots power to cut off war elites once and for all.

In an effort to lift up this important work, Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative has organized DE-MIL-I-TA-RISE—this portfolio and booklet—for use in Dissenters’ organizing campaigns, popular education projects, and cultural programming.

In our doorway, you’ll find a small selection of images from the 30-print portfolio while the entire portfolio is installed in the first-floor entryway. While the building has not been open for public events, we will let you know when there will be an opportunity for public viewings.

You can find more information about the portfolio and an accompanying booklet that includes the work of some amazing poets as well as reproductions of the visual artwork at the Justseeds website.
