Palace Revolution: An International Group Show
On view July 12-August 17


The Galveston Arts Center presents PALACE REVOLUTION, a group exhibition inspired by the concept of a soft or non-violent regime change. While the exhibition addresses various modes of surface politics, the show attempts to go deeper, inviting the viewer to explore more subtle, more elegant motivations and primal sources for change, transformation and ultimately transcendence. Art works of all media will be exhibited in PALACE REVOLUTION, with the intention to spark vital dialogue and discovery of what it means to be truly awake in the 21st Century.
PALACE REVOLUTION features work from:
