Those Who Talk Back Opening Reception
First Friday February 2, 6 – 8 p.m.

Join us as we celebrate the opening of our newest exhibition!

Aram Han Sifuentes’ Those Who Talk Back invites all to enter her interactive library, which houses the Protest Banner Lending Library, and U.S. Citizenship Test Samplers. In these works, fabric protest banners and samplers become a stand in for citizens, non-citizens, immigrants, the disenfranchised, and for those looking to voice their dissent and discontent, and hopes and aspirations for our world. For the duration of the exhibition, gallery visitors are free to check out and return protest banners.

Also happening this First Friday is Kay Barrett’s When the Chant Comes Book Tour!
