From a bustling beach on the Turkish coast to the somber interiors of abandoned schools on an Oklahoma Seminole reservation, "The One and the Many" examines notions of human dignity from multiple perspectives. Are human rights pre-political or are they the artifacts of laws and institutions? Do they belong only to individuals or also to groups? How can we re-vision and de-center human rights to more broadly address the human condition for both the self and the community? This exhibition brings together an international roster of artists whose works speak, each in its own idiom, to human capability and the pursuit of both happiness and social justice.

Exhibiting Artists:

  • Isabel Avila
  • Juan Si Gonzalez
  • Merve Kayan and Zeynep Dadak
  • Issa Randall
  • Sheryl Oring

This event is free and open to the public.
