Indivisible NEWS AND ARTIST PROFILES
INDIVISIBLE 2020: United We Stand / Divided We Fall opens online October 24. The online art exibition features today’s most exciting voices in political art exploring our values as a country in 2020.
On this week’s podcast, we are continuing our discussions with artists participating in the Indivisible 2020 exhibition for which Not Real Art is the media partner, and today’s guests are none other than artists Linda Vallejo and Man One. Linda Vallejo is a multimedia artist who consolidates a range of influences from a lifetime of travel and study to create work that explores contemporary social, cultural, and political issues. Man One joins Linda in conversation, and these two powerful artists in our community discuss their Latinx identities and the way this has informed their work. They first unpack what indivisibility means to them and share how they both came to realize that they had been brainwashed into the belief that all Americans are united.
Indivisible 2020 is an invitation only political art exhibition featuring some of today’s most exciting voices in political art:
opening a discourse about our values as people
With the Covid-19 pandemic and social unrest becoming more prevalent, Americans have become even more divided than ever. The recent explosion of civil rights movements is a long overdue opportunity to create transformative change and to open a discourse about our values as a people. What are American Values? What does Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness mean? Is there anything that We The People can agree upon anymore?
According to American political scientist Larry Diamond, democracy consists of four key elements: a political system for choosing and replacing the government through free and fair elections; the active participation of the people, as citizens, in politics and civic life; protection of the human rights of all citizens; a rule of law, in which the laws and procedures apply equally to all citizens.
Democracy requires the active participation of its citizens, and voter suppression has become one of the most important issues of our time. Whether for President, Governor, Attorney General, County Recorder or a local judge, every single vote matters. We are not just voting for a person but a set of ideals: Freedom of Speech, the Right to Assemble, Human Rights, Free and Fair Elections and Equal Justice for All.
Art can inspire and be a catalyst for change. Artists from diverse backgrounds, disciplines and experiences are invited to submit work on the themes of equality, justice, human rights and freedom of expression. In diversity there is beauty and there is strength. We can create a more perfect union by bringing our voices together in unity, celebrating our differences, and focusing on what we share in common, rather than what divides us.
Art Inspires and Is a catalyst for change.
