A powerfully inspirational day of activism and art. From #nycwomensmarch2018 to City Center to see #EveEnsler ’s “In the Body of the World”. Wow. This starkly personal account of her own cancer and the brutal realities faced by women in the Congo is...well, there are no words #artaction #artactivism #artactionday

Seni Manubilis - Semsar Siahaan | . Semsar Siahaan adalah ikon utama aktivisme seni di Indonesia. Ia memberdayakan seni sepenuhnya sebagai upaya pembebasan masyarakat dari kemiskinan dan ketidakadilan. Keindahan seni justru muncul dengan sendirinya dari upaya pembebasan yang dilakukan oleh seniman. Kebebasan perorangan ada demi pembebasan manusia terbanyak. . Pada 1981, ia menggegerkan dunia seni rupa Indonesia dengan mengabukan patung karya Sunaryo, gurunya. Karya itu baru saja kembali dari pameran seni patung internasional di Fukuoka, Jepang. Semsar membakar hangus patung itu, membungkusnya dengan daun pisang, dan menyajikan nasi kuning. Ia menyebutnya “seni kejadian” dan kena skors dari kampus. . Bagi Semsar, seni modern Indonesia memuja keindahan estetik. Para seniman memanipulasi seni tradisi untuk kepentingan ego mereka sendiri. Sejak kepeloporan Raden Saleh (1811–1880), kiblat seni di Indonesia adalah Barat dan mimpinya adalah kemakmuran negara-negara maju. Estetika modern ini abai terhadap kenyataan sosial di negeri sendiri, yang sebagian besar terdiri atas kaum agraris miskin (petani dan nelayan). Pada masa Orde Baru, hak-hak dasar rakyat itu dihilangkan dan kemanusiaan mereka ditindas. . #semsarsiahaan #senimanubilis #bukusenirupa #sen#senirupaindonesia #seniaktivisme #artactivism #raw #bookofart #artbook #bookaboutart #senirupaindonesia #sejarahsenirupa

Egg Mother - Day 142 "Egg Mother" is my performance art piece symbolizing the amount of abuse and suffering experienced by female chickens in the egg industry. For the entire lifespan of a chicken, I will take time to create an egg out of clay every day, no matter the day, to mourn the female chickens who are unnaturally forced to lay one egg a day, putting a tremendous amount of strain on their bodies. For a female chicken, the average number of eggs laid (naturally) would be about 15 per year, and she would live to be about 8-10 years old. In the egg industry, female chickens are forced to lay an egg every day until their bodies give out from the exhaustion at 1-2 years, when they are then taken to slaughter for meat. By taking away the egg from underneath a chicken, she instinctually must produce another one, which becomes very hard on her body. The conditions egg-laying chickens live in are some of the most cruel in animal agriculture. The typical cage is so small that they don't have room to stand up, turn around, or groom themselves, which becomes very frustrating as they go against their natural instincts. The cages are stacked on top of each other so that the chickens relieve themselves onto each other, while still being unable to clean themselves. The eggs fall through the bars of the cages to be collected. Free-range and cage-free are no better because they are grouped in larger spaces with more chickens, where they must climb on top of each other with no real room to move. Some people believe that buying local or organic eggs from smaller farms or backyard chickens is humane, however the chicken is still being forced to produce an extreme and unnatural amount of eggs, thus putting unnecessary abuse on her body and shortening her life. Although this piece focuses on the life of female chickens, it should be noted that a frequent practice in the industry is the grinding up of male chicks alive in machines similar to wood chippers after they hatch. Because they don't lay eggs, it doesn't make much economical sense to keep the male chicks alive. Eggs (as well as all animal products) are unnecessary, unhealthy, replaceable, and never humane.

Just a selection of what we made during #artactionday Big thanks to @kennedyprints for teaching me how to quickly #print #artistactivist students ideas. We printed over 20 different sayings with #woodtype and #metaltype And we cleaned up in under six hours. Our base was brayer painted 2017 letterpress calendars. Pictured here are some from a series, one “BE” statement for every month. These and more will be part of my window installation for my show of #the50cardproject opening Thursday! #artactivism #letterpress #letterpresslove #letterpressprinting #amoskennedy #kennedyprints #inspiration

The most powerful silent protest I've seen today. Brick by Brick. Using Trump's hateful words to build a wall to block him out. Building human walls against misogyny. #whywemarch #brickbybrick #silentprotest #artactivism @womensmarch

Dear Insta-family, meet my friend @artbynickferran. 🍑✨ Nick is one of the men in my community that I admire the most. Not only is he an amazing artist and graphic designer but he is also a leader. Over the last year I've seen him conquer self acceptance and encourage others through his vulnerability, speak out on rape culture and demand better for women, and being an art activist by providing work like these stickers. I usually throw my weight behind women only, but there are men out there that are true allies, and he is just one shining example. ✨ We have some of these stickers available at @collective_state_fw but if you are from around the world, I am sure if you contact him directly, he will hook you up. Thanks for being exactly who you are, Nick! #fucktrump #dumptrump #donaldtrumpcankissmyrump #artactivism #activist #rapeculture #womensempowerment #selfacceptance #selflove #selfcare #feminist #artist

Brunch masterpiece, vegan eggs benedict! @champsdiner This totally makes up for a recent (horrible) experience where a restaurant was lying about serving “vegan” food... Definitely going to stick with supporting all vegan restaurants, and this one is the best of the best! Thank you, Champs!! 💕

the past couple years have been pivotal in our history. when these types of shifts occur, find an artist. engage in what they’re making. the type of art that doesn’t just grab your attention, but sends a message. makes a statement. powerful statements. resonates. and spurs action. #fake @angelamelecagallery #timrietenbach
