From the American Revolution to Harriet Tubman and the abolitionist movement to Rosie the Riveter, bandanas have played an important role as a historical symbol in the struggle for freedom. In the midst of a global pandemic and a powerful civic awakening, our artists bandanas seek to carry that spirit into the future as a sign of our collective commitment to democratic values. As Americans band together to demand justice in the streets, we also have to make sure that our voices are heard at the ballot box in November.
It is the most powerful non-violent tool we have in a democracy. And we must use it. John Lewis (1940 - 2020). Victoria Cassinova is a Los Angeles based visual artist. Her work is rooted in the desire to inspire, empower, and to be a positive contribution through the art of visual communication.

For more than forty years, Jenny Holzer has presented her astringent ideas, arguments, and sorrows in public places and international exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale, the Guggenheim Museums in New York and Bilbao, the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Louvre Abu Dhabi. Starting in the 1970s with the New York City posters, and continuing through her recent light projections on landscape and architecture, her practice has rivaled ignorance and violence with humor, kindness, and courage.Holzer received the Leone dOro at the Venice Biennale in 1990, the World Economic Forums Crystal Award in 1996, and the U.

Developing her artistic vocabulary through a coalescence of abstraction, mysticism, corporality and landscape, the breadth of her experimentation with unconventional techniques, materials and styles speak to the multicultural and experiential contexts that have shaped her life and career. Born in Maiquetía, Venezuela, Hurtado emigrated to the United States in 1928, settling in New York where she attended classes at the Art Students League.

For the last decade, Alex Israels art has embraced pop-culture as a global language.Trafficking in the invisible stardust of Hollywood and the detritus of film productionbackdrops, sets and propswhile riding the wave of the Internet and social mediaas online talk-show host, eyewear and clothing designer, filmmaker and hologramIsraels art practice doubles as a brand, centered around a Southern Californian millennial lifestyle for which his iconic profile-in-shades-logo becomes a sly emblem, mobilized across high-visibility platforms from the worlds of art, entertainment, fashion and tech. Embedded within each of Israels endeavors is not only a landscape (of LA) and a portrait (of himself), but a cool and savvy meditation on a world fueled by celebrity, product placement and influence.
A sort of sphinx behind dark lenses, the artist provokes an interrogation of the role of contemporary art in this new world. The clouds rain on all our bones.

Johnson's multiplicity is embodied in the materials and processes she employs to create layered works asserting allegiance and agency in the face of continued threats to land, water, culture, and marginalized bodies.

Xavier Schipani is a trans artist whose practice is dedicated to articulating the personal, social and political aspects of his identity. His joyful and vivid figurative paintings celebrate the trans male nude and offer visibility for non-binary bodies. The large scale of much of his work is intentional and references the monumental loss that trans lives have experienced due to a historical lack of representation.
By offering a visual identity to accompany transmasculinity, his art seeks to construct safe spaces where restrictive sexual and gender norms lose their hold and open dialogue is possible. Xavier Schipanis work has been widely exhibited and appears in commissioned public murals from Austin to New York City. A graduate of the Maryland Institute of Art, the artist lives and works in Austin, Texas. Rirkrit Tiravanija is a Thai artist who lives between New York, Berlin, and Chiang Mai.

As platforms for these activities, he has designed architectural structures and interventions, presented both in gallery and public spaces.Tiravanijas ability to create environments that reject the primacy of the art object, instead promoting the bringing of people together through simple acts of communal care and the challenging of expectations around labour and virtuosity, has resulted in his recognition as one of the most influential artists of his generation.
