A•GEN•CY: A Home in the World
A For Freedoms Exhibition
Curated by Lester Julian Merriweather

A•GEN•CY: A Home in the World is an exploration of what it means to be a free person of color within the current experiment of American democracy. The intention of A•GEN•CY is to examine two pillars of the For Freedoms platform: Freedom from Want and Freedom from Fear.

For Freedoms is a platform for civic engagement, discourse, and direct action for artists in the United States. In a world where there can be potentially narrow expectations concerning how artists of color address the construct of race in historical terms, this exhibition takes a different approach. The works in A•GEN•CY express ideas around the freedom to be a person of color living in a viscerally racialized America. A•GEN •CY examines ways people of color thrive in a moment where the concept of race is used as a weapon against them.

Participating artists include: Kenny Wayne Alexander, Sheila Pree Bright, Michael Paul Britto, Kevin Brooks, Janaye Brown, Tommy Kha, Lawrence Matthews III, Carl Moore, Andrea Morales, Catherine Patton, Xaviera Simmons, and Jade Thiraswas.
