Re-imagining A Safe Space will explore critical questions regarding the idea of a safe space. We hope to reach deeper and richer understanding of our needs as a public—and how those needs differ depending on demographics and who we are individually.

The Spring exhibition will include works by 22 photographers, video artists, and visual artists:

Mangue Banzima, Martin Bell & Mary Ellen Mark, Nina Berman, Zoë Buckman, Cause Collective (Ryan Alexiev, Jim Ricks, Will Sylvester, Hank Willis Thomas), Elizabeth Colomba, Bruce Davidson, Erika deVries, Donna Ferrato, Samara Gaev, Caran Hartsfield, Lili Holzer-Glier, Jessica Ingram, Michael Koehler, Barbara Kruger, Lorie Novak, Gordon Parks, Alice Proujansky, Safe Space Collective (Myles Golden, Nate Palmer, Mallika Vora), Scheherazade Tillet, Sophia Tsanos, and David Wojnaorwicz
