Preview Images from Syrian Resistance Art Show, Syria: A Silenced Scream

Mana Contemporary is debuting a new show of anti-Assad resistance art. The exhibition, called Syria: A Silenced Scream, will display over 250 political posters that have been translated into English for the first time and some of which date back to the very beginning of the resistance movement. The show is a creation of Syrian artist collective The Syrian People Know Their Way, who use social media and the Internet to comment on life on the ground in Syria. The collection of preview images below gives a different sort of glimpse into the ongoing carnage and despair: taking cues from street art, typography and graphic design -- rather than photojournalism -- these images present stark, violent scenes along with anti-Assad slogans, a repudiation of the no-fly zone debate, and references to May 17, 2012, a date belonging to one of the largest protests seen thus far during the conflict. The exhibition opens on Sunday, September 29 in the gallery's Jersey City location at 888 Newark Ave.
