Who Writes History?
What is the “truth”? And is there one truth, or many? Who “owns” history? Does it belong to the writers and those written about, or do we all hold a share of it as a collective? ArtsWestchester explores these questions in Who Writes History?, an exhibition that focuses on a more inclusive recounting of the past and present. Participating artists explore how images and language (together and independently) shape our collective memory and mainstream narratives. Co-curated by Randy Williams and supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. Co-curated by Adam Chau & Randy Williams.
