About Moving Walls 24
On display at Open Society Foundations–New York from October 2017 to July 2018.
Here We Are: Visual Resistance and Reclaiming Narratives—the 24th iteration of the Open Society Documentary Photography Project’s ongoing Moving Walls exhibition series—brings together ten individual and collective artists, journalists, documentarians, and advocates who engage with art and documentary practice as forms of resistance.
Together they confront and challenge our understanding of past trauma, present-day realities, and future possibilities within the context of race, religion, sexuality, political and economic repression, and colonial history.
In addition to being selected for the Here We Are exhibition they also represent the inaugural class of Open Society Moving Walls Grantees, who have been awarded funding to continue existing or new bodies of work that stand at the intersection of arts, media, documentary, and social change.
Their work hangs in the galleries of Open Society’s New York offices at a time when our work within a larger community of change-making individuals and organizations is under attack, and we are united and emboldened in our collective strength and resolve. We are proud to support and stand with these socially engaged, revolutionary, and paradigm shifting visionaries as they use their creativity to hold those in power accountable and to catalyze transformative change.
