Gigantic ArtSpace [GAS] loudly presents Tactical Action, a group exhibition that asks the question ‘how can we be heard?’

Artists investigate the sociological and the political as they are assimilated into artistic context. Individual perspectives examine “public opinion” and “political process”, exploring the collection, dissemination and expression of information defined not by any specific medium, but by an attitude toward the media.   An exhibition catalogue will be available.

Dissidents include:
