Trust Your Struggle (TYS) artist collective celebrates sixteen years of existence here in Oakland...and The Struggle Continues. TYS collective will be welcoming new members, as well as honoring our elders in this two months exhibition at Amor Eterno Arte.
This exhibition will highlight past works that have been created with various communities here in their hometown in Oakland. Showcasing the visual art tradition in the Bay Area of painting murals grounded in social movements, TYS will create a visual timeline display including multi-medium installations, photography, paintings, video installations and historic prints of artworks. A new mural in the alley of Amor Eterno Arte will also be unveil as part of this exhibition.
Throughout the two months, a series of public programs will accompany the exhibition incorporating cultural dialogue with youth and elders, printmaking workshops, and more. More information and dates on public programs coming up soon.
The Struggle Continues exhibition is for TYS to share their methods of collective and collaborative strategies. Their intent is to inspire local tactics and international solidarity and to display their cultural growth and longevity in the visual movement here in the Bay Area and worldwide.
