Louder Than Words brings together an international team of artists from 12 countries who use different media to communicate their emotions, concerns, memories, and ideas about life, nature, hope, decay, politics, world events, and humanity. The pieces contained in this exhibition speak for themselves, louder than any words that could describe them.
In her quest to fully express herself, an Iranian artist's installation depicts how despite the circumstances, there is always hope. The triptych of an American artist shows us that no matter how much time passes, some news and memories are powerful enough to stay with us and inform the present by evolving into new forms. A Venezuelan artist in her installation reminds us that we are all pilgrims on this path that is life and that the spiritual pilgrimage can, even without words, allow the melody of the heart to move us.
These works help us rethink who we are and find new ways to contemplate and understand our unique contributions to the world.
