Activating Democracy: The I Wish to Say Project
In previously staged performances, the artist invited the public to dictate postcards to the presidential candidate of their choice. For Art in Odd Places, Oring works with students from Monmouth University and others to create a public protest incorporating messages from these postcards. Several dozen students join the artist in a procession around Union Square. Participants are invited to carry handmade signs that share their demands for the next president.
