Their work engages critical race and human rights issues by looking back at forgotten, ignored, or suppressed stories and people. This exhibition asks: “Who gets remembered?”For this exhibition, Burge presents Won’t You Help to Sing These Songs of Freedom?, a series of portrait quilts depicting survivors of Chicago police torture; two quilts honoring African American trans women murdered in Chicago in 2022; and a lifesize portrait quilt of Albert Woodfox of the Angola 3 who survived four decades of solitary confinement. Accompanying the torture survivor quilts are newly collected oral histories, artworks, family photos and poems compiled by students at the School of the Art Institute.
