Exploring ideas of identity, power, and belonging in the United States, Talking Back to Power: Projects by Aram Han Sifuentes presents garments, banners, samplers, quilts, and sculptures that highlight American immigrant experiences.
The exhibition examines themes of justice and inclusion through artworks, including many that are co-created with the artist's community of collaborators. On view are pieces that delve into the artist’s own immigration experience, the valuable but undervalued labor that many immigrants provide, the official and unofficial ways that immigrants create spaces of belonging, and the power of creative protest for envisioning a better future.
