At the Frieze art fair in New York, over 60 leading galleries are paying tribute to social justice, showing works by the world’s most influential artists.
The goal is to change how we see the world by examining art’s role in portraying race and citizenship. It expands on The Vision & Justice Project, a landmark 2016 issue by Aperture magazine on photography in the African American experience.
“For the past year, so many of us have not only seen the pandemic, but also the incredibly important Black Lives Matter movement,” said Rebecca Ann Siegel, director of content at Frieze. “This really felt like a moment to pay tribute to some work that is so resonant with today’s issues.”
Works by renowned artists such as Stan Douglas, Hank Willis Thomas, Lorraine O’Grady and Ming Smith are on display.
