    Entry fee: $15

    Post Colonial Revenge (PCR) is an exhibition that centers rage, justice, and collective healing from intergenerational and intergenerational traumas. Revenge is defined as the “avenging of oneself usually by retaliation in kind or degree” or “to inflict injury in return for”, however through a postcolonial lens, revenge can be seen as inflicting injury onto systems built upon a legacy of violence onto black, brown, indigenous, immigrant, queer, and working class livelihood. It seeks justice beyond the established institutions that continue to fail oppressed and marginalized communities, since these institutions weren’t meant to serve them in the first place. This extended definition of revenge validates the rage of marginalized people, while encouraging them to continue channeling that energy into healing and social justice movements. By understanding rage, this exhibition investigates how it can be used to shape hope, inform action, and build upon intergenerational resistance.
