    'Resist! Insist! Persist!'

    Tools

    Through Dec. 13

    It is a sad fact of human evolution that there are so many reasons to express resistance to one another. University of Vermont students in a 2018 art history class chose the timely topic, curating an exhibition at the Fleming Museum of Art with artworks and objects primarily drawn from the museum’s permanent collection. The show features the work “of historical and contemporary artists who have countered adversity and hardship with empowerment and expression,” explains exhibition text. The subjects range from racial violence to political suppression to the underrepresentation of women in the art world. at Fleming Museum of Art, University of Vermont in Burlington (map). Free with museum admission.

    'Travis Shilling: Tyrannosaurus Clan'

    'Travis Shilling: Tyrannosaurus Clan'

    Tools

    Through Feb. 8, 2020

    Shilling, a Canadian Ojibwe painter, filmmaker and playwright — the second artist son of Aboriginal painter Arthur Shilling — was born in Rama, Ontario, and maintains a studio in Toronto. His works in the Burlington gallery may be a revelation to local art viewers. Shilling’s visions frequently depict animals — painted Ojibwe style — at odds with humans who seem blithely bent on destruction. For example, an outsize bird perches on a backhoe that’s digging a channel for a pipeline; a fish hovers alongside an oil rig in the sea. Shilling’s juxtaposition of graphical, vibrant native symbology and darkly impressionistic scenes is jarring — in a good way. Trained in native and contemporary arts, he wields both to address some of the sad consequences of imbalance in the modern world. at BCA Center in Burlington (map).
