All Together, Amongst Many: Reflections on Empathy explores the cultural and sociopolitical issues currently defining the United States. Presented on the heels of the 2020 U.S. elections, the work of 21 artists takes various approaches to understanding empathy and aims to awaken shared beliefs in humanity during these polarizing times. The artists are based across the United States and Canada and through their diverse, unique perspectives broadly engage ideas centered on land rights and Indigenous rights, climate change and the environment, food justice, accessibility and healthcare, immigration and migration, systemic racism, LGBTQIA2S+ rights, the criminal justice system, police brutality, and violence on all accounts. This exhibition, while not an exhaustive survey, provides a snapshot of America’s turbulent society today.
