Cinema Politica – PORTRAIT OF RESISTANCE

PORTRAIT OF RESISTANCE 600px

The Mid Island Chapter of the Council of Canadians and the Nanaimo Arts Council invite the community to join us for PORTRAIT OF RESISTANCE: THE ART AND ACTIVISM OF CAROLE CONDÉ & KARL BEVERIDGE as part of Cinema Politica’s special screening series ARTDOX. This screening is free and open to the public. Donations welcome.

As the wealth divide and environmental crises grip public awareness, the world is finally catching up to the vision and ideas of two artist/activists who make work for social change. Inspired by their playful wit and visual innovations, PORTRAIT OF RESISTANCE intimately captures Carole Condé & Karl Beveridge as they create provocative staged photographs about the environment, the rights of workers and the current global financial crisis.
