On View to September 1, 2017

A Century of DISSENT!  Help to be the solution.  Join in on this summer-long project by Hunter East Harlem Gallery, artist-in-residence, Jason Lazarus in a “collaborative REMAKE” of protest signs used in Harlem and East Harlem’s history of protest from 1917 to present day. Many took part in a one-day event, Wednesday, July 12 from 3-5 pm at the Gallery, creating posters that were used at the rezoning hearing on July 13 at the Silberman School of Social Work.

The exhibit, A Century of Dissent! explores images from Harlem’s history of protests as well as today’s social media posts. The exhibit also works as a platform for organizations with a message – offering the exhibition as an event space.

Related programming includes The Case for Community Policing: lecture by Dave Cazeau on Wednesday, July 26th from 6:30 to 8:30pm, at the Gallery, 2180 Third Avenue, enter on 119th Street. In this lecture, Dr. Cazeau takes a look at the organization of the police department through institutional theory. More here.
