Art in the age of Donald Trump can no longer be neutral. When I walked into The Bureau of Arts & Culture, the new exhibit by PDL (a collective that includes Jed Dunkerley, Greg Lundgren, Jason Puccinelli, and Arne Pihl), my question was this: What part of Trumpism is it challenging? After a look at the 21 installations, I concluded that the answer was capitalist realism. The show presents proposals that imagine other kinds of economies, connecting art to circuits that are clearly outside of the market. Some of the proposals in the show are comic and some are very serious. The whole show argues that there is an alternative, and its materialization will require a little dreaming, a little nonsense, and a lot of courage. CHARLES MUDEDE

Starting December 1, King Street Station will host 21 art proposals "designed to trigger a new enthusiasm for the direction of our city and how art can play a vital role in our future... tackling issues such as homelessness, gun violence, urban growth, cultural tourism, arts education, and human trafficking." Part of the show is the Give Gallery, where if you donate blood between November 28 and December 16 through Bloodworks, you can take home, free, a work of art by a local artist from the gallery, including Jeffry Mitchell, Crystal Barbre, Charles Peterson, June Sekiguchi, Warren Dykeman, and Amanda Manitach.
