RUB is an independent publication
an exhibition at Flux Factory
an invitation to collaborate, learn and build community

The concept of this exhibition moves between two axes: the DIY strategies of the NOW-WAVE, and GRAPHIC ACTIVISM. The NOW-WAVE houses artists who produce counterculture that challenges the boundaries of Nationhood, and address issues that cross cultural boundaries. This movement wrestles with the notion of collective vs individual identities, and uses a praxis of art and activism that moves beyond the white box context. The second axis is experimentation and reinvention through GRAPHIC ACTIVISM. The RUB Exhibition centers pieces with a special sensitivity for printed matter and publishing as practice, that makes visible under-represented and under-appreciated identities. Themes that are included are: the experience of POC and QPOC; therapeutic art practices that deal with abuse, depression, and trauma; using graphic languages in the processes of resistance; and always returning to the personal as political. RUB features a selection of multidisciplinary practitioners and artists who use these two axes as raw materials.
