"Common Interests" is a survey of projects that question how public space and public assets are managed, offering theoretical and practical ideas for reclaiming autonomy in public space. Working with sculpture, interventions, social practice, drawing, performance and video, the exhibiting artists reflect on the limitations and possibilities of public space, proposing new ways of accessing, navigating and improving these shared resources. Guest curated by Sara Reisman, the exhibition features work by Pierluigi Calignano, Sue Jeong Ka, Jonggeon Lee, Mary Mattingly, Diego Medina, Francesco Simeti, Tattfoo Tan, Lan Tuazon and Alex Villar.
Admission is free and open to the public. Regular gallery hours are Monday - Friday, 10 am - 5 pm (extended to 7 pm on Wednesday); and Saturday, 12 - 5 pm.
After forty years of slavery, Abdul-Rahman finally reclaimed his freedom, but he defied the order to return immediately to Africa, and instead traveled throughout the northern states, speaking to huge audiences in a partially successful attempt to raise enough money to buy his children?s freedom. Finally at the age of sixty-seven, and after raising funds to free two of his children, Abdul-Rahman returned to Africa, only to fall ill and die just as word of his arrival reached his former home of Futa Jalloo in present-day Guinea. Abdul-Rahman survived the harsh ordeals of slavery through his love of family and his deep faith as a Muslim.
