Curated by Elizabeth Ferrer
Opening Reception: March 16, 2016, 7-9pm
Whisper Or Shout 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 as strategies 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.
The 3,000 square-foot Gallery in BRIC House has soaring 18-foot ceilings that permit major exhibitions focusing on emerging and mid-career artists and curators.
