A GLOBAL COMMUNITY OF ARTISTS UNITED FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE
We are a global network of emerging and contemporary visual artists, organizations, and institutions
working at the intersectionof art, activism, and social justice.
WHAT WE DO
We support and collaborate with artists (or groups of artists) to create public dialogue via group shows, digital storytelling, activism, and more.
HOW WE DO IT
Through events, community projects, and convenings, we engage the vital role of the arts ecosystem to build movement and solidarity across borders.
ArtUnitied is organizing a group exhibition for artists who stand in radical opposition to the xenophobic and discriminatory policies of the Trump administration – particularly the assault on refugee and immigrant rights, the crack down on already marginalized communities, and the rollback of civil liberties in the name of protection and security.
ART & SOCIAL JUSTICE
Art plays a critical role in social justice activism and social movements. It gives people the agency to interrupt and alter oppressive systemic patterns. It is accessible across social boundaries and provides a universal language that gives voice to individuals and communities. Every day, we use art to record history, shape culture, cultivate imagination and harness individual and social transformation.
