Miguel Abreu Gallery announced the opening, on Wednesday, September 7th, of Singing In Unison, a multi-part, large scale group exhibition organized by Phong Bui and the Rail Curatorial Projects. Lucy Fradkin (DG 2008) and Advisory Council Members Jon Kessler (CRF 2015) and John Newman (DG 2014) will participate in the exhibition.

Following the aspiration to heal our social and political ills through the arts and the humanities, this exhibition aims to foster social unity by bringing together a diversity of practices, styles, and voices. This timely show is a celebration of hope for a better future. The exhibition combines works made by artists who were formally trained, alongside works by artists who were self-taught. Among the participating artists, themes of gender, ethnicity, the limits of knowledge, are prominently featured.

As an integral part of the Rail’s curatorial vision, which emphasizes cross-pollination of the arts and humanities, the exhibition harnesses the power of art as a public site to stage programming, and will be accompanied by events, including panel discussions, poetry readings, musical and dance performances, as well as film screenings.

Each iteration of the exhibition series is dedicated to a recently deceased friend and artist, as a tribute and form of living memory to their lasting contributions. Singing In Unison, Part Six is dedicated to American sculptor and anthropologist, Richard Nonas (1936–2021).
