The US president inauguration ceremony of Donald Trump will be held on January 20th. As it already has been broadcasted on the major media, the wave of lawmakers declared that they would not be attending his inauguration ceremony. And also a lot of musicians declined to perform at the inauguration so far.

There is no exception in the world of art. The boycott movement “#J20 ART STRIKE” is planned to get art galleries in New York City closed in protest against Trumpism. Meanwhile, there were also voices against it as it should move actively to surpass the chaos. Some galleries are also preparing special programs for the day. There is a trend driven by artists to draw attentions.
