Contemplate the power of non-conformity and your own potential for action at Clapping with Stones: Art and Acts of Resistance. Using the Rubin’s circular architecture to create an immersive site-specific display, the exhibition examines social, cultural, and political events through a local and global lens, offering unique perspectives from 10 contemporary artists living and working in the United States and internationally –all of whom are grouped together for the first time in this constellation.

Featuring works in a range of sizes and media, including photography, sculpture, video, textile, and installation, Clapping with Stones articulates a wide variety of societal and political themes while making an open-ended call to action.

Clapping with Stones: Art and Acts of Resistance is organized by guest curator Sara Raza, independent curator and writer. The exhibition is produced by the Rubin Museum of Art.

Clapping with Stones: Art and Acts of Resistance is supported by Rasika and Girish Reddy, the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Foundation, anonymous, Basha Frost Rubin and Scott Grinsell, Akhoury Foundation, Preethi Krishna and Ram Sundaram, and Sonny and Gita Mehta.
