ONE YEAR DOWN

MISSION

"One Year Down was a pop-up art and performance event held on Juanary 19th and 20th, 2018 at the New Deal Gallery in Little Rock, AR. The “One Year Down” Exhibition sought to follow in the history of art activism, not through propaganda or inflammatory cheap shots, but through a mature visual dialog and critique of the current political state. The call for entries was open to artists on both sides of the political aisle. In a red state like Arkansas, it was important to give a platform to all voices in order to acknowledge a diversity of thought in our state that may not show up in overarching statistics. It was also important to approach this show in a bipartisan manner so that people from all positions were able to participate.


Forty-four works were included in the exhibition which discussed a range of issues including immigration, war and the volatility of our current foreign relations, climate concerns, race in America, the status of women and the #metoo movement, the death penalty, and other pressing trends. In this time of exceptional partisanship, the hope for this exhibition is that it will not cause further tribalism, but through its inclusion of diverse viewpoints and issues, that the exhibition will encourage discussion and reflection. The works in the show are meant to be active participants in contemporary culture, pushing conversations forward, and fostering positive social change.
