From community activism to global social movements, THE ART OF PROTEST features politically engaged artists past and present responding to disaster and injustice and calling for change. Comprising works of art from Newcastle Art Gallery’s collection and key additions from contemporary politically engaged artists, this exhibition explores how far we’ve come and how far we still have to go.
