Hank Willis Thomas, artist and co-founder of the For Freedoms artist collective, teamed up with Emily Shur, photographer and designer, to reimagine Norman Rockwell’s 1943 series Four Freedoms, inspired by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s 1941 State of the Union address. Using the four freedoms articulated during Roosevelt’s speech—Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear—For Freedoms created an updated tableau that highlights a much more inclusive America than what was originally styled in Rockwell’s iconic scenes. Thomas and Shur will sit in conversation with New York Times critic and Still Processing podcast co-host Wesley Morris to discuss their powerful series “For Freedoms,” on view in Manifesto: Art x Agency, an exhibition exploring the work of artists who aim to effect change in the world around them. We encourage you to arrive early. Ring Auditorium seating is limited. Any open seats may be released to walk-up visitors 10 minutes before the program. Please e-mail [email protected] if you would like to request ASL interpretation for this program.
