Honoring the tenacity of creative resistance, even in the most onerous and repressive political climate, comes "Art Riot: Post-Soviet Actionism," a London exhibit of Russian protest art over the last 25 years. The launch of the show at the Saatchi Gallery coincides with the 100th anniversary of the start of the Russian Revolution, and aims to remind viewers that many of the same issues from 1917 - censorship, authoritarianism, individual freedom - are still in play. Ranging from photography to punk rock to performance art, the show is a reminder of the universal power of artful protest in bleak times; it urges us, says one member of Pussy Riot, to "Just do riot in your country."
