Gallery Talk | My Silences Had Not Protected Me: A Roundtable on the Exhibition


This exhibition unites a collection of artists who together represent the multidimensional intricacies of sexuality and its inherent relationship to power. My Silences Had Not Protected Me challenges the viewer to confront the ways in which societal narratives of sexuality are formed and communicated. Central to this exhibition is the idea of power: how sexuality can be both an object of abuse by the powerful and a source of power for those who wield it. This discussion includes curator Jasmine Wahi and artists Natalie Frank, Ogemdi Ude, Amy Wilson, and Anastasia Warren.
