Join the MSU Broad and several contributing artists in a celebration of The Edge of Things: Dissident Art under Repressive Regimes. This exhibition gathers experimental artworks from the 1960s through the late 1980s made in a climate of fear and censorship. The diverse visual strategies and actions employed by these artists were a way to communicate, interrogate, and make visible what was being pushed to the edges of official state narratives. The opening reception will include a reinterpretation of Margarita Paksa’s Comunicaciones as well as artist activations by Martha Araujo and Regina Vater.

The Edge of Things: Dissident Art under Repressive Regimes is organized by the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University and curated by Carla Acevedo-Yates, Associate Curator, with support from Georgia Erger, Curatorial Assistant, Thais Wenstrom, Curatorial Intern, and Patrick O’Grady, Graduate Fellow in History. Support for this exhibition is provided by the Eli and Edythe Broad endowed exhibitions fund and the Center for Studies on Latin American Art (CLACS).
