WHO WRITES HISTORY?
Opening April 2022 at Arts Westchester
Supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, “Who Writes History?” is an exhibition of new work that will address the complexities of writing (or rewriting) history. Commissioned artwork created by Hudson Valley artists will be exhibited in context with a diverse roster of artists from beyond the region to explore how images and language (together and independently) shape our collective memory and mainstream narratives related to race, gender, and politics. The exhibition seeks to bring marginalized stories to the fore in an effort to work towards a more inclusive recounting of the past and present.
Open until June 2022
Curated by Tal Beery, Erin Lee Antonak
Owning Earth is an outdoor sculptural exhibition consisting of 20 installations by 18 artists in response to systems of human domination over our environments and the urgent need to enact futures guided by mutuality and reverence.
