News Aaron Terry Exhibition and Lecture on Art & Politics in Moscow, Russia

Image Picker for Section 0

Aaron Terry lectured at Moscow's British Higher School of Art and Design on his current General University Research Grant-funded project focusing on art’s role in reflecting the current political climate. In today’s “Post Cold War” climate, we are no longer presented with news limited to newspapers, radio and television. Instead, we are faced with innumerable perspectives from the many printed and online news publications and through social media. It can at times feel impossible to ascertain one truth or set of truths regarding what is going on in our world: locally or abroad. We subscribe to Twitter’s 280 character limit at the potential expense of “Post Truth Politics”: often appealing to our emotions rather than to factual information. Throughout the Cold War, artists played a major role in vocalizing support and dissent of Cold War policies. This work was often subversively presented to the public (in private and in public), in contrast to the news media in presenting us with curated, current events.

For the month of January, Aaron was an artist in residence at Fabrika Center for Creative Industries in Moscow. During his time in residence (as part of a GUR Grant), he worked at the PiranesiLAB Printshop to create a series of prints for the first exhibition of 2020 at Fabrika, opening on Jan.31.
