Whisper or Shout: Artists in the Social Sphere

An exhibition I have curated, Whisper or Shout: Artists in the Social Spheref, opens at BRIC House on March 17.  It features the work of nine artists who engage with a range of critical contemporary social and political issues. Each of the artists will bring different issues to the table, including police violence, homelessness, gentrification, and cultural self-determination, to name a few. In presenting these projects, the exhibition will underscore the varied forms of communication and language that artists devise asstrategies of protest, education, documentation and/or information sharing. They include posters, music, speech, silence, photography,computer languages, and apps. Central to the exhibition will be a series of public programs including artist performances and workshops.
