PORTRAIT OF RESISTANCE: THE ART AND ACTIVISM OF CAROLE CONDÉ AND KARL BEVERIDGE
Roz Owen & Jim Miller /CA / 2011 / 72 min / English
 

PORTRAIT OF RESISTANCE is an intimate documentary about Condé & Beveridge’s pioneering creative collaboration.

It began in New York’s competitive art scene in the 1970’s. Finding themselves in competition with each other, the young married artists abandoned their rising individual careers to save their marriage. Returning to Canada they began working with each other, and with a range of community activists.

Inspired by their wit and visual innovations, PORTRAIT OF RESISTANCE captures the artists as they create provocative staged photographs about the environment, the rights of workers and the current global financial crisis.
