Murmurs of Democracy
February 19, 2020, 2 – 4pm
Organized by artist Matthew Girson
In conjunction with our current exhibition, “Slowly, With Care” the O’Connor Gallery is pleased to present this related event.
The Murmur of Democracy is an opportunity to read to and for each other. Our texts will be poems, speeches, and testimonies of people who have survived various forms of oppression. Designed as reflective, teaching opportunities each Murmur aims to build community around themes that are central to the democratic promises written into our nation’s founding documents.
There is no microphone, no podium and no stage in order to foster horizontal interaction. Everything is organized democratically to allow participants to reflect on the successes and failures of democracy. Participants are invited to bring their own readings.
