Contemplate the power of non-conformity and your own potential for action at Clapping with Stones: Art and Acts of Resistance. Using the Rubin’s circular architecture to create an immersive site-specific display, the exhibition examines social, cultural, and political events through a local and global lens, offering unique perspectives from 10 contemporary artists living and working in the United States and internationally — all of whom are grouped together for the first time in this constellation.
Featuring works in a range of sizes and media, including photography, sculpture, video, textile, and installation, Clapping with Stones articulates a wide variety of societal and political themes while making an open-ended call to action.
