Gallery Talk: Art, Activism, and Actualizing a More Just World
Join us for an in-person gallery talk on the intersection of art, activism, and actualizing a more just world, featuring Human Rights Watch US Program Director Tanya Greene.
Renowned Spanish artist Jaume Plensa’s Forgotten Dreams (2023) features all thirty articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, written across the faces of a bank of twenty-one aluminum doors. Plensa describes the Declaration as “the most beautiful poem in the world” as it embodies our dreams to be better as human beings, and to strive for perfection even though it is inevitably impossible to attain—a beacon with the potential to lead us toward a more enlightened path.
