In the lead-up to the election, in this season of reckoning and righteous anger, we asked artists to consider the meaning of the silence of the good in the context of voting. Perhaps more importantly, we asked artists to consider the silencing of the good: the people who have been and are unjustly (but often legally) denied their right to vote and participate in the political process.
This exhibition begins and is encircled by a history of voting in the United States. Our history and present is as much a story of silencing as it is of silence. As we imagine a more just world and future, we are called to consider what we lose in silence and silencing, and what true repentance for past and present injustice would look like.
