On March 30th, 2018, INDECLINE, an activist art collective secretly installed an art exhibit into a rented hotel suite at the Trump International Hotel and Tower in New York City. The exhibit “The People’s Prison” depicts Donald Trump in a prison cell surrounded by American flags. 13 artists have adorned those flags with portraits of prominent voices of dissent, many of whom faced critique, hardship, and (in some cases) assassination, for expressing free speech in the not so distant past. 1/3 of the proceeds from the sale of the paintings in this exhibition will be donated to the artists' chosen charities. The sale of this painting benefits Alexandria House.
Hunter S. Thompson was an American journalist and author, and the founder of the gonzo journalism movement.
Series: INDECLINE: The People's Prison, March 30, 2018 Trump Tower, NYC. & April 19 – May 20, 2018 Gallery 30 South, Pasadena, CA “INDECLINE wants to suggest that freedom is not so much strengthened by the intolerant bigots who might test it, but rather those who test them…those who are willing to risk everything up to life and limb to stand when others might just kneel out of convenience. But history is bigger than any given season, and historically, the greatest heroes have stood for something deeper than politics.”
