Opening Reception for "Resistors: 50 Years of Social Movement Photography" at the Berkeley Art Center.
From the Free Speech Movement in 1967 to 2017's Women's March, this exhibition is curated by Ken and Melanie Light and features some of the foremost photographers in the Bay Area.
Revolutionaries, protestors, and now resistors. The Bay Area has been home to a long and proud tradition of citizen activism, which has often been in the vanguard and the cause of increased human and ecological rights across the nation. Now in this time of heightened citizen involvement across the country, this exhibition links generations of resistors and provides inspiration for the ongoing struggle to achieve peace, equality and justice.
