Summer of Know is a conversation series dedicated to engaging with current issues as they are filtered through the generative lens of art. Co-curated in 2020 by For Freedoms and designed to spark cross-disciplinary dialogue and debate, these discussions feature contemporary artists, practitioners, and thought leaders who are at the forefront of the ideas, organizing, and actions most urgently impacting society and culture today. In the first program of this 2020 series, join For Freedoms members Eric Gottesman, Hank Willis Thomas, and Michelle Woo for a discussion of healing, justice, and the power of listening. The conversation will be moderated by Claudia Peña, the interim executive director of For Freedoms. Founded in 2016 by artists Hank Willis Thomas, Eric Gottesman, and Michelle Woo, For Freedoms is a platform for creative civic engagement, discourse, and direct action. Inspired by American artist Norman Rockwell’s paintings of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms (1941)—freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear—For Freedoms’ exhibitions, installations, and public programs use art to deepen public discussions on civic issues and core values, and to advocate for equality, dialogue, and civic participation.
