For many years people have struggled under the consequences of war and tyranny. Often times these two entities are incorporated into each other. The sentiments of these struggles transcends many mediums and eras of art, being a relevant subject matter in many generations. As a result, these artists incorporate the experiences of struggle and even death into their work, as the artist often struggled under the same or a similar conflict as the oppressed represented in his or her work. This gallery works to present the product of political unrest, highlighting the people that felt the effect of turmoil, not solely the issues themselves. More simply, it is not necessarily an anti-war exhibit, but rather a collection of works commenting on the people afflicted by the various societal struggles. Each artist, in some way, has a relationship with the subject on which they focus. Yet there is also a thematic parallel through the exhibit's entirety. The exhibit wishes to stress the importance of the issues of the world today though the strife of paste generations. Rather than focus on the artistic movements in which war was opposed, the intent was to create a correspondence between the pieces presented and our own similar societal struggles. Several of the work in the gallery feature the element of war, specifically the destruction that was left in its wake. These works represent the more modern elements of the gallery and create a conversation between the works of art and the wars of today. The idea with these works is to create a conversation between the multiple eras and in turn a conversation with our own generation. Elements to consider within the pieces are the sadness, anger, and destruction that are consistent with war. Each theme is closely related to the greater subject of political unrest. Subsequently, a unity is created amongst the works, allowing them to flow together and resemble a timeline of political reactivity. The process of creating this gallery came from a personal interest in the unique aspects that drive artists to create their works. The gallery was specifically inspired by the relationship of societal tragedy and the creation of art. The hope is that a relationship will be built between the art presented and your own life. This gallery is an inspiration of art and people, the relationship they hold together, and the terrible "price" required to bring them together.
