KB Brookins: Freedom House

April 13 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Freedom House is a multimedia installation that includes poems, film, furniture, and collages that simulate what freedom — embodied in everyone’s most delicate and personal place — looks and feels like. The poems in this exhibit are from KB Brookins’ book of the same name, Freedom House. Brookins states, “While writing the Freedom House book, it was helpful for me to give large words like ‘freedom’, ‘abolition’, and ‘defund the police’ — all things I believe in — a visual form. In this way, I’m showing you my process. I’m also bucking up against the often-ired question asked of revolutionaries: ‘what does that look like?’ For me, it looks like this. A home is a mind well-lived in. Art is one of the many tools we need in order to create a truly free world. So take a walk through this iteration of Freedom House. It’s meant to be lived and loved in by you.” Join us for a reception with the artist on Saturday, April 13th from 6pm to 9pm.
