Co-presented by the African American Library at the Gregory School

In conjunction with her exhibition Organized Love: Ideas on Nonviolence, curator Danielle Burns will speak with Rabéa Ballin, whose work is in the exhibition. The conversation will revolve around the effectiveness of protests against oppressive systems, as conveyed in Ballin’s art.

In a world where some people have power and others have to suffer beneath them, many well known people have felt that protesting oppressive systems is a moral imperative. In response to a surge in protests, this conversation will discuss the effectiveness of what has been accomplished.

This program is part of Project Row Houses’ series Gandhi in the Present: Strategies of Nonviolence through Artistic Practice.
