For decades, British-American artist Sue Coe has dedicated herself to shedding light on injustice, calling attention to a wide range of political, socioeconomic, animal and environmental cruelties. Since the 2016 presidential election, the self-described artist-activist has relentlessly questioned the Trump administration’s abundant threats to democracy, public health and freedom in the United States.
On view from September 15 through December 31, 2020, with a dedicated companion website, Sue Coe: It Can Happen Here features paintings, drawings, lithographs, woodcuts and linocuts spanning Coe’s prolific career. While sometimes tough to look at, Coe’s work compels viewers to feel compassion for the world’s many unseen victims and to enact change in our broken capitalistic system.
