Since the 2016 election, artist Morgan O’Hara has been hosting workshops in various public settings –libraries, galleries, studios, etc.–where visitors are invited to sit down and handwrite the US Constitution word for word. For this exhibition, O’Hara asks visitors to come to HEHG and sit down for a group session of writing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The project touches on language, ideas of declaration and democracy, and overall, situates itself as a self-determined work of art.
