Presented in collaboration with the ACLU of Illinois, this group exhibition does not presume there is a universal definition of democracy. Instead the artists offer various entry points into the elusive term via different modes of sensory engagement—light, sound, text, and touch—presenting the viewer with tangible ways not only to reflect, reconsider, and respond, but also to listen to a diverse range of viewpoints with diligence and care. Featuring artwork by Alejandro T. Acierto, Kandis Friesen, Hannah Givler, Aram Han Sifuentes, Ariana Jacob, and Aay Preston-Myint.
