Strike Anywhere, the 2012 Alumni exhibition on view at the ICP School from September 8 to November 25, 2012, presents the extraordinary rise of popular pro-democracy movements across the globe over the last 18 months, focusing specifically on events such as the Arab spring, the conflicts in Libya and Syria, and the Occupy Wall Street Movement. The movements represented in this exhibition have deployed a range of tactics, from civil disobedience to armed resistance.
Join us tonight for the opening reception of the exhibition, beginning at 6 pm at the ICP School.
