Let Us Vote: An Artist Intervention with artist Aram Han Sifuentes in conversation with associate professor of art Lisa Iglesias

This is a past event.

What would voting look like if it were available and accessible to those who can’t legally vote? An estimated ninety-two million adults cannot vote in presidential elections because of citizenship status, felony disenfranchisement, or because they reside in a U.S. territory, while others are cut out of the process for reasons such as lack of proper identification or they have been purged from the voter registration rolls.

Join us for a live conversation with artist Aram Han Sifuentes to hear how she has been reenvisioning the voting process in her acclaimed and ongoing collective art project "The Official Unofficial Voting Station: Voting for All Who Legally Can’t." This collaborative initiative aims to spark imaginative voting stations across the country that become sites for social engagement and discussion.

The close-captioned recording will be available on the MHCAM website. This event is free and open to the public; advance registration required.

Co-sponsored by the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, the Studio Art Department, the McCulloch Center for Global Initiatives, and MHC Votes.
