(ACTION DC!) “Bearing Witness: Visualizing Modern Slavery”

September 25, 2017 - October 20, 2017

“Bearing Witness” combines photographs, paintings, sculptures, collages, video, and installations to provide a moving snapshot of the global scale of human trafficking. Whether it’s forced domestic labor in Singapore, child labor in Indonesia and Burkina Faso, or the sex trafficking of women throughout the United States, forced labor of all types permeates the global economy, a fact most of us never want to acknowledge. While the images and stories on view are at times difficult to stomach, they point to a collective need to bear witness.

Featuring works by: Hetty Baiz, Xyza Bacani,Larry C. Price, Molly Gochman, Mary Ann Schindler, FAIR Girls, and survivors.
