Exploring Protest 4

Noga Wizansky’s practice engages with place, memory, and forms of belonging. Charcoal has been her medium of choice in recent years.  In the protest series, she explores the various forms through which resistance takes shape—from bodies gathering in public to solitary creative work. She also wonders about passion, hubris, and symbols we understand as violent but can’t honestly disavow. Underlying all is the need to both speak (sometimes shout) and listen. Born in Ashkelon, Israel she now lives and works in northern California. She teaches art and visual culture at California College of the Arts. www.nogawizansky.com
