For Freedoms x Fotografiska New York We are proud to partner with the artist-led organization, For Freedoms, to present Listen Until You Hear, featuring artworks by Hank Willis Thomas, Cassils, Maia Ruth Lee, Cannupa Hanska Luger, Eric Gottesman and Kameelah Janan Rasheed. All from diverse backgrounds, these six artists collectively create an exploratory forum for visitors to consider the idea of “visual listening,” a concept where we ask you to not only listen with your ears, but to connect more deeply with your own body and to be more aware of your relationship with others. ABOUT THE EXHIBITION What does it mean to accept and relate to the unfamiliar experience of someone else or make sense of what we only know through intuition or feeling? How does truly seeing and hearing each other impact our relationships and stories? Listen Until You Hear is an invitation to audiences to be present by approaching the photography, film, sculpture and performance on display, with curiosity and intentional awareness. Each of the exhibiting artists explore the idea of listening as healing with work that is deeply personal, political, and imaginative through a variety of media. The artists’ use of representation is an inquiry into the unseen and unheard, and highlights how meaning and value are shaped by our ability to listen and hear others. This exhibition explores how deeper forms of listening can lead to greater awareness and connection to ourselves and the world around us. The artists in this exhibition meditate on the complexity of life—visualizing themes including freedom, family, love, pain, survival and the future.
