Bought & Sold: Voices of Human Trafficking


- January 9 - March 7, 2015

This January, in collaboration with ArtWorks for Freedom, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to use the power of art in the fight against modern slavery and human trafficking, we present Bought & Sold: Voices of Human Trafficking, featuring photography by Kay Chernush and an installation by Barbara Liotta. In this eye-opening exhibition we hope to transform public attitudes, inspire anti-trafficking action, and give voice to survivors. The aesthetic allure of Chernush's striking images draws the viewer in; each layered, constructed image reveals the story of a survivor of human trafficking.

Buy Art, Not People.

Bought & Sold: Voices of Human Trafficking will be open from January 9 - March 7, 2015. Join us at the Opening Reception on Friday, January 9th from 7-9pm. There will also be an Artists' Talk on Saturday, February 7 at 3:30pm. And on Thursday, February 19 at 6:30pm, join us as we welcome actress, writer, Butoh dancer, and choreographer Dawn Saito as she performs an excerpt from "Suns are Suns," her multidisciplinary theatre piece about a trafficked woman.

All artwork will be available for sale during the exhibition, with proceeds supporting the artists, ArtWorks for Freedom, and Smith Center's cancer support programs.

Gallery Hours: Wednesday to Friday, 11am-5pm, Saturday, 11am-3pm, and by appointment.
