Concept: Intolerance is itself, a form of violence…and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit. -Mahatma Gandhi
We are living in a time of heightened intolerance, anger and hardened frontiers. How can creative discourse open up a diverse, respectful dialogue? Can art melt the hardened confines of convictions, broaden the perimeters of comfort and bigotry, free us of our self-imposed boxed-in existences, and allow us to see beyond our own, familiar perspectives? The proposed exhibition gives a forum to creative voices of tolerance that search to reach beyond limitations and to speak to all of humanity in a world of radical and profound divisiveness.
