Stories of Resistance
Bouchra Khalili is participating in Stories of Resistance at the Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis, going on through August 15th, 2021.
“Stories of Resistance explores artistic forms of resistance from across the world. Through visual narratives, artists amplify and bring to focus the multitude of conditions that ignite and inspire people to resist. The exhibition will activate the entire museum space, inside and out, with video, photography, drawing, sculpture, painting, and installation…St. Louis serves as an ideal platform for Stories of Resistance. Resistance movements that have arisen here, most especially the rise of Black Lives Matter in response to the police killing of Michael Brown, have incited global actions against racism and injustice. By looking through a local lens, the exhibition draws connections worldwide, revealing profound influences that traverse borders and cultures.”
