The intersection between creative practice and political act ivism is longstanding. Unrest presents an international group of c ontemporary artists who tackle issues of inequality\, conflict\, and instab ility in recent history. The impetus for this exhibition begins with the wa ve of uprisings in Syria\, Yemen\, Algeria\, Iraq\, Jordan\, and Morocco—to name a few of the Arab Spring revolutions— and extends to the heterogeneou s growth of the Occupy Wall Street movements\, which permeated and inflecte d streets\, offices\, schools\, and cultural centers across the world.
