In response to Franklin D.Roosevelt’s iconic 1941 State of the Union Address—popularly known as his “Four Freedoms” address—artists, writers, and political thinkers offer reflections on the state of our union, and our freedoms, in 2019. During the final 30 minutes of the program, we transform the space into an open mic, and audience members are invited to offer their own performative responses to the Four Freedoms.

Participating artists include Dread Scott, Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere, Maya Binyam, Ken Chen, Avram Finkelstein, Katie Pearl, Michele Pred, Amy Khoshbin, Sonia Guiñansaca, Melanie Crean, and Demian DinéYazhi.

This program is held in conjunction with For Freedoms: Where Do We Go From Here?, on view starting February 8. Our ICP Museum–public program combination ticket grants $10 entry to the galleries starting at 4:30 PM to those attending the program. Tickets are only available online when you register for the program.
