The One and the Many: Perspectives on Self and Other in Art & Human Rights Practices curated by assistant professor Glenna Jennings. Artists from across the country, including Isabel Avila, Juan-Si Gonzalez, Merve Kayan and Zeynep Dadak, Issa Randall, and Sheryl Oring, present work that examines notions of human dignity from multiple perspectives. The art asks: Are human rights pre-political or are they artifacts of laws and institutions? Do they belong only to individuals or also to groups? How can we re-vision and de-center human rights to more broadly address the human condition for both the self and the community?
