Let Me Be a Witness

  • Root Division 1131 Mission Street San Francisco, CA 94103 USA (map)

With the rise of social media, the act of witnessing has become a catalyst of social change by using technology to transform passive observers into activists. Drawing the title from a traditional response of African-American church-goers “call to testify,” Let Me Be a Witness will exhibit work that reflect a variety of concerns that might otherwise never see the light of day. This show will exhibit what might be referred to as “witness art.” Witness art differs from merely political art by responding to specific events in the world. Witness art presents the observable within a framework of knowledgeable research. Witnessing connects subjective experience with objective truth.
