Stand4 Gallery’s upcoming exhibition Uncommitted focuses on civic literacy, engagement, and social matters which affect and reflect the daily lives of Bay Ridge community members. This local lens overlaps with national issues surrounding the 2024 presidential election. In particular, this artist cohort examines concerns related to health care, migration, conflict, tensions between state and federal voting rights, surveillance, the role of technology, and advocacy.

Additional special community events will include multiple voting drives, a civic literacy workshop, zine workshops, and several performances aiming to bolster dialogue and individuals’ investment in the upcoming election. To support our reach within the community, Stand4 Gallery is partnering with the local Bay Ridge Library to host workshops geared toward young adults and the broader population.

NOTE: Uncommitted at Stand4 Gallery is showing in fellowship with the “Who Can Vote” exhibition at the Bay Ridge Library, on display in the Bay Ridge Library lobby until the end of June. .

“Who Can Vote” examines voting rights with an emphasis on the role of the US Constitution and the interplay between the states and federal government in determining who is allowed to vote. Beginning with the founding era and going up to the election of 2000, this exhibition explores the complex history of the right to vote that forms the core of our nation’s democracy. Topics include voting as a constitutional right, women’s suffrage, Reconstruction and Jim Crow era voting rights, the Civil Rights Movement, and the enfranchisement of Indigenous peoples.

This exhibition is available at no cost through the GLI’s project The Right to Vote: The Role of States and the US Constitution, supported by the Annenberg Public Policy Center.
