We Are All Related exhibition
March 22, 2019 - May 12, 2019Free
We Are All Related, a multimedia exhibit of photographic portraits, audiovisual recordings, and written narratives by acclaimed Pittsburgh photographer Andrea London, opens March 22 at 937 Gallery, downtown Pittsburgh. We Are All Related is a collection of compelling images and stories of the human experience and human and civil rights struggles of individuals and families living in the region.
We Are All Related features images and the personal narratives of immigrants and refugees, members of the LGBTQ community, people with differing abilities, and others facing discrimination and marginalization. Select subjects include a woman blind since birth whose parents had to fight for her to attend a public grade school, a Bhutanese family who survived 20-years in a Nepali refugee camp; a 24-year-old transgender man, and a family whose patriarch was recently deported.
A concurrent public art installation by Andrea London, designed to expand the visibility of We Are All Related, is also opening on March 22 at the corner of Penn and Centre Avenues in East Liberty. This high-traffic intersection will carry a conversation of cultural inclusion and prospective sharing through the streets of Pittsburgh. In a call for understanding and urgency, this installation includes large-scale vinyl printed portraits of diverse residents and the words “We Are All Related” translated in the 17 languages represented by the portrait subjects.
The We Are All Related exhibition at 937 Gallery, 937 Liberty Avenue in Downtown Pittsburgh, and the public art installation on the corner of Penn and Centre Avenues in East Liberty, both run from March 22 through May 12. The public art installation is hosting a neighborhood kickoff party Sunday, March 24 from 2-4 p.m. A book of the portraits and narratives, also titled We Are All Related, will be available at 937 Gallery, in book stores throughout Pittsburgh, and online.
