Program Description:

Abortion. Roe v. Wade. Again. A burning, controversial subject that divides us. For years we took having control over our bodies for granted. Now we can’t. Did you have one? Do you know someone who did? Was it legal? Did someone you knew die as the result of an illegal abortion? Or, were their bodies so screwed up afterward that they could not have children when they wanted them? Do you have remorse? Did you tell anyone about it? What is the definition of pro life anyway? Aren’t we all pro life? Are you against abortion? For abortion? Express your rage or your acceptance, your sorrow, your ambivalence, your thoughts: tell them in visual prose, video, photography, painting, mixed mediums, sculptures, prints, performance.

Many of the battles men and women waged, battles we thought were won and done, have, over time, come galloping back in full force to be won or lost again. If there is a lesson to be learned, it is that the important fights are never over. Abortion is one of the most inflammatory and urgent issues that face us now. This is a moment to examine, analyze and give voice to this painful, relevant subject.
