Human Proof Fence: Opening Celebration and Discussion (Art Exhibit)
October 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The East Side Freedom Library invites you to join us for the opening celebration and discussion of the commissioned art exhibition
“HUMAN PROOF FENCE”
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26, 7PM
ESFL founders have long been haunted by the 2002 Australian film, “Rabbit Proof Fence,” which told the story of three mixed race Aboriginal girls who escaped from a re-education camp in 1931 by following a thousand mile fence (which had been erected to contain rabbits) back to their home community. Inspired by this story, weshaped the concept of an art exhibit to be called “Human Proof Fence.”
With the support of the Marbrook Foundation, ESFL has convened five visual artists with direct or allied experiences of dislocation, confinement, borders, walls, and resettlement. For six months, Aye Lwai, Rosie Say, Ger Yang, Pacha Galavíz, and John Matsunaga have had conversations with each other. They have created powerful visual expressions of their communities’ experiences.
Join us in bearing witness to their work and in discussing it with them.
