It is 2017. We are a nation polarized, a society reeling. In times like these, itâs the artistsâ duty to interpret, to comment upon, to draw attention to, and even to resist injustices and inequalities. Bent Frequency presents a program of works by artists determined to explore the difficult topics of modern injustice and advocate for equality, peace, and love through commentary, satire, and reflection. The works in this program invite the listener to think anew about our common humanity and uncommon times. With love, we resist!
