For Freedoms: Where Do We Go From Here? curated by Ava Hess, in collaboration with For Freedoms, explores the role of art in daily American life through the eyes of the For Freedoms collective. Founded in 2016 by Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman, For Freedoms is an artist-led platform which seeks to encourage public discourse and political awareness in the United States.

The exhibition re-envision American artist Norman Rockwell’s paintings of the “Four Freedoms” articulated by Franklin D. Roosevelt in his 1941 State of the Union Address. Freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear are embodied in  everyday scenes referencing Rockwell’s iconic style while developing more inclusive representations of the country to the discussion of  core values.
