Join us for a virtual conversation between artists Amber Ginsburg and Aaron Hughes, curators of the exhibition Remaking the Exceptional, and Christina Rivers, Associate Professor of Political Science at DePaul University.

What went into making this exhibition? Remaking the E​xceptional marks 20 years since the opening of the United States’ extralegal prison in Guantánamo by examining local and international ramifications of state violence, while also uplifting acts of creative resistance. This exhibition highlights connections between policing and incarceration in Chicago and the human rights violations of the “Global War on Terror.” It celebrates the struggle for survival, justice, and reparations by imprisoned people, activists, and artists. Remaking the Exceptional​ brings together a diverse group of artists and activists working on the legal and moral implications of torture and incarceration.

This program is sponsored in part by the Pozen Center Human Rights Lab.
