Rail Curatorial Projects presents Singing in Unison: Artists Need to Create On the Same Scale That Society Has the Capacity to Destroy. Curated by Phong H. Bui and Cal McKeever.
Spread across eleven venues, the exhibition will combine works of art made by artists who were formally trained alongside works by artists who were self-taught, including works by incarcerated artists and artists who struggle with mental illness. This exhibition is inspired by an underlying philosophy that runs through American history and advocates for “the art of joining” as a social and cultural process that can mediate the disequilibrium within American politics culture. Among the participating artists, many urgent themes and topics, such as gender, ethnicity, and the limits of knowledge, will be prominently featured.
