You are invited to the launch of YOU MUST DISAGREE WITH AUTHORITY FIGURES, an artistic disruption to the public spaces at mac Birmingham and Cannon Hill Park. The interventions include political, and potentially confrontational messages, performances, objects and moving image inspired by ARTIST ROOMS: Jenny Holzer exhibition at mac and the themes of politics and protest.
The interventions have been bought together by Ampersand Projects during a summer long project which captured the political opinions, fears and hopes of young people and families in their own voices. The works have been created by different groups; a group of emerging artists responding to political and social issues, participants from homelessness charity Crisis and a group from St. Chads Sanctuary, who support refugees and those seeking asylum.
The interventions will be in place at mac Birmingham and Cannon Hill Park.
The project is supported by:
