Abstract (English)

"To ‘strike a chord’ is to create or trigger an emotional negative or positive response to an action. In this exhibition, artists respond to times of peril and violence: they retaliate with protest, search for healing, all while conjuring an atmosphere of resistance. At times when our role as citizens seem to ever more bluntly demonstrate that actions need to be taken in order for there to be change, Montreal-based artist Claudia Bernal, Toronto-based artists —Coco Guzmán, Julieta María and David Constantino Salazar— use performance, video, installation, sculpture and drawing to position themselves as activists in a society that has revealed its ultra-right wing ideology." -- Publisher's website.
