CURRENTS 2016 | Do You Hear What I Hear?

March 17 - April 17

 

A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce Do You Hear What I Hear?, an exhibition curated by Anthony Elms as part of A.I.R. Gallery’s CURRENTS Series of innovative exhibitions that address contemporary issues warranting critical attention.

“Do you hear what I hear?” is a request—hope—for a connection between individuals responding to their environment. How do you listen? It depends on who you are. Current affairs routinely offer tragic examples of the many-sided responses to actions and events in the world at large. Recent books such as Rebecca Solnit’s Men Explain Things to Me and Claudia Rankine’s Citizen: An American Lyric, directly speak to race and gender in the American social sphere, and elucidate how both race and gender too often render many citizens unheard, unseen, and unattended to.

Respecting the varied ways races, genders, sexualities and classes interpret the world around us, let’s learn to listen to the stories, histories, and traditions of many. This is an open appeal, to ask, “Do you hear what I hear?” to fight the dismissals and silences, because something is happening, even if you aren’t always sure what it is.

Opening Reception: March 17th, 6-8pm
DUMBO’s First Thursday Art Walk: April 7th, 6-8pm
