Won’t Lovers Revolt Now is a group exhibition guest-curated by The Fuel and Lumber Company of Birmingham, Alabama (est. 2013). Borrowing its title from a take-away object/poster by Las Hermanas Iglesias, the exhibition presents the work of eight artists, working in diverse media - from equally diverse cultural and conceptual positions. The connective tissue that unites the work is a poetic approach to art making, one that simultaneously embodies the fragility and vulnerability of life in contemporary society, but does so with belief and conviction in the power of art to transform in the face of the oppressive forces that currently confront us.
