A Visual History of Protest in America by Bonnie Siegler

Non-Breaking Space

Sept. 20th—Nov. 29th, 2018

“This exhibition is a small collection of visual expressions of resistance throughout American history. People used the weapons they had at their disposal: paper and pen. Their only “client” was their conscience. Every protest image was made because someone felt compelled to act out of a belief in what they felt was right.

Hopefully, we can learn from these past movements, and apply those lessons to our resistance today. While I was compiling the book, Signs of Resistance, which inspired this exhibit, I went back and forth between rage and hope–rage because, to quote a favorite sign at the Women’s March, ‘I can’t believe we are still protesting this shit.’ And hope because looking at these images reminded me that there have been other dark, shameful chapters in American history, and yet somehow democracy survived. Because we did what we do best: We kept fighting.”
