A POP-UP EXHIBITION AND ARTIST BOOK LAUNCH
Ellen Sollod presents RESIST at BONFIRE Gallery in conjunction with the first anniversary of the Women’s Marchfeaturing Sollod’s projects: Ribbons of Resistance, I Resist/I Embrace and 100 Days/100 Postcards. RESIST brings these projects together through photographs, prints and limited edition artist-books. Sollod will be giving away Ribbons of Resistance throughout the show.
Sollod began her Ribbons of Resistance project immediately following the 2016 Presidential Election. Over the last year as a demonstration in support of our democracy, she has given away by hand, by mail and at marches nearly 1500 black, embroidered ribbons. She also undertook her I Resist/I Embrace portrait project in which she created photographic portraits of nearly 50 people declaring what they resist and what they embrace. Following the 2017 Presidential Inauguration, Sollod began the 100 Days/100 Postcards project through which she sent a postcard to the White House each of the first 100 days of the Administration. The exhibition will include selected photographs, large scale prints along with the artist books that document these projects.
