Artistry hosts Fawzia Khan's work in their new exhibition, Endemic.
I am interested in what unites us. My hope is to spark a deep conversation amongst the viewers through which they see the “other’s” point of view and in doing so acknowledge our common humanity. This creates an opportunity for empathy and resolution. As an immigrant woman of color, a physician and a mother, I am concerned with issues of marginalization, gender inequities, and the balance between safety and freedom.
The topic of gun violence seems like a dismal and unlikely theme for an art exhibition, but art is a powerful voice that sifts through the chaff to reveal the kernel of wisdom at the center of any issue. We have to decide, as a society, where the balance lies between safety and liberty. How much of our individual freedom are we willing to give up to ensure the safety of our children, or do we accept a certain number of deaths each year in order to preserve a right to bear arms?
Presented alongside THE CULTURING OF GUNS | JANE POWERS.
