These artworks consider how the human body acts as a vessel for--and mother to--the memories, languages, and ghosts that link past, present, and future. The United States, where nearly all of these artists live, occupies a paradoxical place in their work. The U.S. government, military, and police appear as the cause of persistent violence and oppression and yet the country also promises to provide a site for refuge and relief. As contemporary artists seek to address the worlds in which they live, their art raises important questions about whose bodies and whose stories matter.
