ACTION: STRIKE A POSE OF RESISTANCE
As part of our efforts to continue creating and disseminating images of protest, artist Jamil Hellu photographs participants expressing themselves in front of a plain backdrop. Their outlines and silhouettes serve as a foundation for a wallpaper pattern Hellu will produce for future prints, posters, and installations that celebrate these important expressions of resistance. Hellu and 100 Days invite you to stop by the gallery to strike a pose of resistance, adding your gesture to a growing collective display of action.
History shows that political symbols are born when bodies take a stand. Drawing on the necessity of protest, Hellu’s photographs reflect another necessity: that we revel in the diversity of our bodies individually and collectively in the demonstrations we make against this chaotic government.
