For Freedoms

With another important election coming this November, MOCA Cleveland presents the return of For Freedoms, an artist-run super PAC founded by artists Eric Gottesman and Hank Willis Thomas. There will be a special panel discussion today at 3 p.m., moderated by Jorge Sanchez, with introductions by Hank Willis Thomas and Dan Moulthrop. Panelists include Abraham Cruzvillegas, Hany ElHibir, Murat Gurer, Leen Midani, Navid Tavoli and Glory Brissett. Thomas is one of the most highly acclaimed artists working today. His conceptual photography explores themes of identity, race, history and pop culture. In 2015, Thomas co-founded For Freedoms with fellow artist Eric Gottesman "to encourage art-based forms of political discourse and deeper engagement surrounding the 2016 presidential election." In partnership with For Freedoms, MOCA Cleveland is hosting a two-year residency focused on a series of free, quarterly Town Hall discussions co-produced with the City Club of Cleveland. Admission is free. (Usmani)
