An Exhibition of Student Art for Change
Duderstadt Center Gallery
November 3 – December 1
Reception Wed, Nov 29, 5-7 p.m.
In conjunction with the Fall 2023 Theme Semester: Arts & Resistance and the U‑M Arts Initiative. The 2023 Respond/Resist/Rethink exhibition will include art of a variety of mediums and will be displayed in four galleries across all three U‑M campuses, including Stamps Gallery (Central Campus, Ann Arbor), Duderstadt Center Gallery (North Campus, Ann Arbor), Riverbank Arts (Flint), and Stamelos Gallery (Dearborn).
The arts play a central role in shaping cultural and political narratives. Artists, designers and creatives of diverse backgrounds have been at the forefront of social change by offering alternate models and ways of thinking, making and creating that do not perpetuate dominant regimes. Creative processes have been used time and again to reveal under-told stories and to resist simple narratives. Regardless of one’s personal politics, an artwork’s potential to change hearts and minds is urgent and necessary. Respond/Resist/Rethink invites students to leverage their creativity to (re)imagine what they can do to create a more just and equitable community in the spaces that they inhabit.
Respond/Resist/Rethink: An Exhibition of Student Art for Change is co-presented by Stamps Gallery and Arts Initiative in partnership with the Duderstadt Center Gallery, Riverbank Arts, and Stamelos Gallery.
Note: There is a slightly earlier closing date at the Duderstadt Center.
