UNREST: Revolt against Reason presents an international group of contemporary artists who tackle issues of inequality, conflict, and instability in recent history. The impetus for this exhibition begins with the wave of uprisings in Syria, Yemen, Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, and Morocco and extends to the heterogeneous growth of the Occupy Wall Street movements, which permeated and infected streets, offices, schools, and cultural centers across the world.


Natalie Musteata is a Ph.D. student in Art History at The Graduate Center, CUNY, and an adjunct lecturer at Parsons, The New School, where she teaches Performance and Participation in the 20th Century. Last year she presented a paper on artist-curated exhibitions at the conference The Now Museum: Contemporary Art, Curating Histories, Alternative Models at the New Museum, New York. Her most recent essay, "Performing Dissent: The Rhetoric of Opposition in Reenactment Performance," will be presented at CAA in February 2013.
