Lien Truong at Sordoni Art Gallery, Wilkes University, Wilkes-Barre, PA, USA: October 23 – December 16, 2018

Loud Silence: Expressions of Activism calls on the viewer to examine their own blind-spots and understand perspectives they may have never considered through art. The works featured demonstrate the unique perils of living while a woman, while of color, while indigenous, while LGBTQIA+, and while an immigrant. For centuries, artists have used the image of the body as an exploration of their humanity and that of their subjects. This exhibition explores artists who use the human figure or body as a means for activism. The exhibition features artwork by 40 artists including Judy Chicago, Kara Walker, Faith Ringgold, Ana Mendieta, Kiki Smith, and Jenny Holzer.
