Targeted Speech Exhibition
March 5 - March 30
Reception March 7 at 6pm
Everyday political discourse is at a historic high in volume, and a historic low in content and productivity. While multiple research studies show that more people spend more time consuming political news and content than previous generations, they spend less time listening to opposing views. This polarization, exacerbated by the ready availability of online content to support almost any point on the political spectrum, has predictably led to animosity fear to question party lines, greater obfuscation of truth and logic, and, ironically, a less-informed populace.
Nowhere is this effect greater than the national conversation about guns. The exhibition visualizes this conversation by making unified posters from politically targeted speech.
