More about the Exhibition:
The Sordoni Art Gallery at Wilkes University presents Loud Silence: Expressions of Activism, on display from Oct. 23 to Dec. 16, 2018. The exhibition features the works of 39 artists and focuses on the unique perils of living while a woman, while of color, while indigenous, while LGBTQ, and while an immigrant. The exhibition calls on the viewer to examine their own blind spots and understand suffering they may have never known through art. It features the work of Judy Chicago, named on the 2018 list of TIMEmagazine’s 100 most influential people, and Kara Walker, a 1997 MacArthur Genius Fellow. Other notable artists include Ana Mendieta, Cannupa Hanska Luger and Jenny Holzer.
