No Longer Empty is proud to announce the launch of the culminating initiatives of NLE Young Exhibition Makers and Youth Action Council!
In response to the current pandemic and social justice uprisings, Young Exhibition Makers (Y.Ex) curated the virtual exhibition, “A NYC Youth-Led Response to COVID-19,” that captures a youth-led perspective of the psychological effects of the virus. Meanwhile, Youth Action Council (YAC) NYCapsule is also thrilled to share their call-to-action towards solidarity and change through #ImagineAwrld, a poetry-based manifesto and documentary.
For their exhibition “A NYC Youth-Led Response to COVID-19,” Y.Ex members focused on capturing how other youth were thinking, feeling, and taking care of themselves during this unprecedented time of physical isolation. The work selected directly reflects the youth artists’ personal responses to the current pandemic.
#ImagineAwrld encourages all of us to envision a more inclusive, equitable world. One that is, in the words of YAC members, “Free from violence. Where we promote brotherhood and sisterhood. Where liberation is not dependent on the exploitation of others…just imagine.”
