Giving Voice: The Art of Dissent

Expand your students' awareness of big social and political issues of injustice in our community, within Australia and across the world through the arts. 

Giving Voice: The Art of Dissent explores themes of socio political injustice. The exhibition builds upon a tradition established by artists such as William Hogarth, Francisco Goya, Pablo Picasso and Leon Golub, all of whom gave voice to their concerns in relation to injustice and social inequality. 

Selected works by eight artists feature in this exhibition, and respond to critical pressing social and political issues.

Themes
Current affairs, politics, religion, race, inequality, war, visual arts
