Truth to Power 4 

When: July 13-Aug. 7 2016


Truth to Power, Pleiades Gallery's annual juried show in response to issues of social justice, arrives at a moment of particular urgency. In the aftermath of HB 2, the Orlando massacre, the police-shooting deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling, and the retaliatory shootings of officers in Dallas, these North Carolina artists, selected by Center for Documentary Studies director Wesley Hogan, bring messages of resistance, grief, and the will to change. They do so through photography, sculpture, painting, video, and more, the diversity of the media reflecting the diversity of perspectives the show celebrates. You can add your voice to the chorus at this Third Friday reception, which includes an open mic at Five Points Plaza "for anyone who wants to speak/dance/sing/drum their Truth to Power." This important exhibit runs through August 7. —Brian Howe
