Tania Bruguera works with people to expose, critique and change the institutional structures and political dynamics that impact the lives of the most vulnerable individuals and groups in our societies. One of the most recognized socially engaged artists practicing today, Bruguera joins the Brown University community after the the opening of 10,142,926, her Hyundai Commission at the Turbine Hall at the Tate Modern in London. For her exhibition at the David Winton Bell Gallery, Bruguera will further explore themes and techniques arising from her work and research at the Tate Modern.

Snæbjörnsdóttir/Wilson’s socially-engaged projects explore contemporary relationships between human and non-human animals in the contexts of history, culture and the environment. Based on their work alongside bird researchers at Jacob’s Point, RI, The Only Show in Town will comprise artworks made in response to the plight of the saltmarsh sparrow, resident in the world only along a narrow and depleted margin of the east coast of North America and marked for extinction by the year 2050.
