DYKWTCA The Corner at Whitman-Walker
In light of recent developments concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19), events, exhibitions and talks are subject to change. Please follow ArtNews for updates.
DYKWTCA ("Do you know where the children are?") is a call to action and exhibition of over a hundred unique works of art by over a hundred leading visual artists organized by the artists and activists Mary Ellen Carroll and Lucas Michael. Each work incorporates, or represents an actual account (in whole or in part) from a child who was separated from their family and detained by the U.S. government. This text may be in the native language of the child or a translation into English. The accounts are taken from the interviews that were conducted by the Flores investigators that included legal, medical and mental health experts who visited the detention facilities six months ago in June of 2019.
Participating artists: Julie Mehretu and Dan Graham
