For Freedoms is excited to announce four newly commissioned signed and numbered and hand-embellished limited edition prints by moniquemeloche artists Candida Alvarez, Antonius-Tín Bui, Shinique Smith, and Jake Troyli that will be on display in the EXPO /Dialogues lounge alongside a presentation curated by Chance The Rapper. Prints are available at with proceeds benefiting the artists and For Freedoms.

In tandem, For Freedoms presented ART MAKING AND THE SOCIAL CHANGE STAGE: CURATING CIVIC LISTENING THROUGH ART IDENTITIES a panel discussion moderated by Toni Anderson (Consciousness Engineer, Healer and Human Design Strategist) featuring Antonius-Tín Bui (Artist), Lisa Lee (Cultural Activist and Executive Director, National Public Housing Museum), Shinique Smith (Artist), and Jake Troyli (Artist) in the /Dialogues lounge on Thursday, April 11 from 2-3pm. This conversation will explore how social-political narratives expand and restrict artists' practices and shape civic culture and the role of listening in art, community, and our shared humanity.  

Additionally, For Freedoms will be premiering four new segments of For Freedoms News to the public at 21c Museum Hotel Chicago for the duration of the fair. Segments on display, free and open to the public in Gallery 6 will include: What Does Art Have To Do With It? featuring For Freedoms co-Executive Director Claudia Peña and artists Azita Moradkhani and Sheida Soleimani; On Beauty with Anisa Tavangar; Rujeko Hockley and Sarah Lewis in conversation; and Tanya Selvaratnam’s I Like Plants More Than People.
