“What Can I Say?” brings together a group of artists whose work employs language as a tool for provocation and resistance. Drawing on personal experience, history, and current events, these artists respond poignantly to the salient issues of our time using humor, irony, and provocation. Through photography, painting, drawing, fiber art, sculpture, book arts, and performance, “What Can I Say?” collectively addresses national and social identities, the law, capitalism and greed, the news media, and more, illustrating how art can be used as an effective tool for change and resistance.
Artists: Ryan Arthurs, Taylor Clough, Johan Deckmann, Pat Falco, Andy Li, Daisy Parris, John Richey, Joanna Tam, Alok Vaid-Menon
