    The exhibition Of the people reflects of-the-moment political opinions shaping the 2016 presidential race in the United States. From radical posters, a letter writing campaign, and camera-ready announcement speeches to community-made documentary video and inspiration from a DIY catalog, artists have created projects that make space for public participation in a broken election system. Other artworks consider issues such as immigration and what it means to “Make America Great Again”, privacy and metadata collection, the economy and
    debt – all topics hotly debated on the televised stage and during the long primary season leading up to the Republican and Democratic conventions this summer. Election year concerns include ballot design, big money behind campaign finance, Super PACs, voter maps and the Oval Office. Collectively, these works offer critical perspectives on the current electoral process while challenging notions of American democracy today.
