In Hear/Here, four artists explore the need for dialogue within and between American metropolitan areas that are increasingly confronted with displacement, violence and calls for social justice. Without an easy binary of right and wrong, how can communities go beyond just cooperative rhetoric and truly acknowledge and process expressed concerns, hopes and frustrations? This exhibition examines both the points of intersection and disconnection among various groups vying for social and political agency in ever-changing American cityscapes.
