Ruptures: Forms of Public Address
Situated within the context of the upcoming US elections and the one-year anniversary of the Occupy movement, The Cooper Union art exhibition Ruptures: Forms of Public Address explores the urgency, promise, and fragility of public and fearless speech within the aftermath of the 2010-11 demonstrations that erupted worldwide in city streets, university campuses, and urban centers.
