Ways of Protest earlier this year at the Elysium Gallery and Bar in Swansea, High Street, in partnership Swansea Museum, changemakers and Fusion. Contained artworks from over sixty Welsh and International Artists, archival artifacts from Swansea museum, as well as memorabilia , interviews, and photographs from the public and protest groups from Swansea and Wales.
This extensive exhibition explores how the arts can be a vehicle for protest and social change. A celebration of people who have fought for social equality in Swansea and Wales.
The gallery have provided a photographic record and 360 Video tour on their website elysiumgallery.com (exhibitions, archive )
The artworks as always were wonderful and the excellent documentary photography was memorable. Here are just a few examples.
With over 60 artists both local and national, it was very apt in these current turbulent times. Brilliant documentary photography, including Black Lives Matter and disabled protesters in wheelchairs, marching chairs and a birthday cake for Trump you Bastard.
