(ACTION DC!) Bearing Witness Opening Reception

September 29, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for the opening reception for “Bearing Witness: Visualizing Modern Slavery.”

Combining photographs, paintings, sculptures, collages, video, and installations, “Bearing Witness” provides 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.
