Political Art

The Center’s first exhibitions will be “open call” exhibitions, open to all artists who wish to submit their work for consideration.


The Center for Contemporary Political Art, a 501(c)(3) public corporation, will be the first research institute and exhibition space in the United States devoted to the study, patronage and strategic use of political fine art, continuing a tradition of fine art dating back at least to ancient Greece. Indeed, many of the greatest paintings and sculpture in the canon of Western art, from the carved portraits of Alexander the Great attributed to Lypossis (ca323-31) to Titian’s Las Furias (1548/49) to Picasso’s Guernica (1937) to Boris Lurie’s Adieu Amerique: Lumumba is Dead (1961), were created to convey political messages in the aftermath of war or to warn of impending crisis.
