Regis West Gallery
October 18 - November 10
Launching from the For Freedoms 50 States Initiative*, a call for decentralized exhibitions and public events inspired by Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s four universal freedoms — freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear —Department of Art faculty, staff, and students were invited to submit works and project proposals that question this 1941 discourse in today’s climate by first expanding and unfolding Roosevelt’s core concepts. The resulting exhibition includes works by 17 artists.
* Hank Willis Thomas & Eric Gottesman founded For Freedoms as a series of concurrent decentralized art exhibitions and public events across the country to take place from September - November 2018 leading up to and through the November elections. These events are a platform for civic engagement and discourse for artists in the United States. Our exhibition engages with this Nation-wide action.
