Artists need a platform to be seen; before Instagram, that platform was usually the exhibition space. Integral to the existence and success of art that pushes boundaries, powerful exhibitions naturally pull together artists who are speaking on provocative themes. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the exhibitions that are facing censorship are those that are tackling themes of representation, identity, disability, abortion and sexuality—all rights that are under threat and debate and, therefore, are fertile ground for artists.
