This is an engaging and insightful look at the work of five artist trying to capture the spirit of the phrase "throw down".
To throw down can mean many things: to celebrate in a big way, to fight for something meaningful, or to contribute resources to make something happen.
This publication documents a group exhibition by five selected artists, driven by interpretations of the expression "to throw down." They use sculpture, video, photography, drawing and public intervention to address socio-political issues, economic struggles, to invoke a call to action or an invitation to play.
Satire and humour are strategically used as a means of contemplation and critique of relevant issues within society.
The artists selected for the exhibition were Sonny Assu, Gregory Ball, Megan Dickie, Tyler Hodgins, and Alison MacTaggart.
