The gallery is pleased to announce that June Edmonds will be included in For Which It Stands curated by Assembly Room at the Ford Foundation Gallery. For Which It Stands is an evolving physical and online exhibition platform featuring over thirty-five contemporary artists who use the iconic American flag, loaded with centuries of convoluted history and exclusion, to create new symbols of national identity. Amid a highly volatile political climate and rise in white nationalism, these artists assert their place and affirm the multiplicity of the American experience while addressing issues of police brutality, systemic racism, socioeconomic disparities, alternative facts, and a patriarchal society, among others.
June Edmonds will participate in an artist talk on October 24th, 2020 - details coming soon.
Launched by the Ford Foundation Gallery and presented by Assembly Room, this independent, activist-oriented initiative by curators Emily Alesandrini, Natasha Becker, and Eileen Jeng Lynch features talks, performances, and presentations of artworks in physical and online spaces. Each week, For Which It Stands engages different artists and curators in virtual and real time conversations and initiatives.
Curated by: Emily Alesandrini, Natasha Becker, and Eileen Jeng Lynch
