Intolerance as Violence
"Intolerance is itself, a form of violence…and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit." -Mahatma Gandhi
National Juried Exhibition : Guest curator: Ian Alden Russell, Ph.D., Curator of David Winton Bell Gallery, Brown University
We are living in a time of heightened intolerance, anger and hardened frontiers. Our culture is more and more moving towards righteousness, and an ever prevailing sense of moral superiority on all sides. How can creative discourse open up a diverse, respectful dialogue? Can art melt the hardened confines of convictions, broaden the perimeters of comfort and bigotry, free us of our self imposed boxed in existences, and allow us to see beyond our own, familiar perspectives? This exhibition gives a forum to creative voices of tolerance that search to reach beyond limitations and to speak to all of humanity in a world of radical/profound divisiveness.
