With contributions from Carol Padberg, Jessica Santone, Bethany Taylor, Sarah Knudtson, Liz Ensz, Timothy Morton, and more.

Personal is Political is Personal, Curated by Sue Coe, 440 Gallery, Brooklyn, NY

Brooklyn, NY – 440 Gallery presents Personal is Political is Personal. In this intensely political year we hear sound bites and promises that can seem abstract unless it affects us personally. Black Lives Matter. Gender Equality. Gun Control. It’s all just words until we see a child’s body washed ashore, a routine traffic stop becomes deadly, or a family home is destroyed at high tide. 440 Gallery’s theme show this year is centered on the personal effects of politics.
