Now at Librairie
Tavares Strachan We Are In This Together
A text-based neon sculpture and silkscreen by Tavares Strachan is now on view at the Librairie.
WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER is a call to arms: an anthem for our political, social, economic, cultural moment.
Strachan chose the phrase over five years ago. But at this particular moment in time, the universal abstracted text has taken on new significance as a truism for our new local, national and global realities.
This universalizing message is humanist and grounded in the idea that collectivity, unity, integrity, and identity are inextricably bound. This is a mode of address—typical of Strachan’s lexicon—that acts as an effort to mobilize community and societal change, and make a gesture of solidarity.
