As the new academic year began at the University of South Florida, USFCAM hosted a Week of Welcome event to kick off the art season! Luckily for students, classes were not the only exciting thing they had to look forward to. The USF Contemporary Art Museum opened up their newest exhibition, Subrosa: The Language of Resistance, on the first day of classes.
Two days later, nearly two hundred students flocked to preview the new exhibition. The two-hour event was a huge success, with students of all different backgrounds coming to enjoy the art – and of course, the snow cones and ice pops. Subrosa features pieces from contemporary artists around the world who, through their individual mediums, have communicated a singular message of strength and opposition against repression and the cultural status quo.
“I didn’t expect comic panels to be in CAM,” said Caitlin Lochner, a senior Creative Writing major. “It was interesting to see the different mediums used to express resistance to oppression.”
Attendees also got to participate in a scavenger hunt through the museum while taking a little closer look at the artwork.
Subrosa: The Language of Resistance will remain on display at the USF Contemporary Art Museum through December 7th. For more information about the featured artists and future events at USFCAM, please visit the USFCAM website
