A spontaneous pan across a landscape? Or a meticulously storyboarded skit? One takes orders of magnitude more time, effort, and creativity to make, yet both can be consumed equally quickly. How social justice slideshows made by activists took over Instagram. In 1971, to the backdrop of a funky jazz rhythm, musician and poet Gil Scott-Heron declared that “the revolution will not be televised.”

How social justice slideshows made by activists took over Instagram

In 2020, however, it’s possible that the threads of revolution would be found on Instagram — its message distributed through wide chunky typefaces and bold gradient graphics that preface a mini informative slideshow. Online activism, coupled with in-person organizing, reached a zenith in June, as daily Black Lives Matter protests erupted across the country.

The Pitfalls and the Potential of the New Minimalism

He writes about Agnes Martin—who considered herself an Abstract Expressionist but whose poised, transcendent paintings have been claimed for Minimalism—and Walter De Maria, whose installation “The New York Earth Room,” a field of dirt in a mostly empty white space, has been quietly confounding people in SoHo since 1977. He visits Donald Judd’s “100 Untitled Works in Mill Aluminum,” in Marfa, Texas, which defies any attempt to ascribe emotional meaning to it—the aluminum boxes are “just there,” Chayka writes, “empty of content except for the sheer fact of their physical presence, obdurate and silent, explaining nothing and with nothing to explain.” These are the models for a deeper, more honest, less self-centered minimalism, Chayka believes: a way of living that makes “simple things more complicated, not the other way around.”

“The selections were more difficult than ever, so the judges focused on projects that could pave the way as exemplary efforts and could be used as models for other projects.”
