In Solidarity With
This time slot, In Solidarity With, has been set aside to respect the many artists who couldn’t be with us this year. There are always cancellations, but this year, more than any previous edition, global violence has interrupted the lives of those we had hoped to welcome, as they respond to the realities in their lives.
Of course we do our best to fill the gaps, but the truth is that their voices cannot be replaced. It also feels worthwhile to acknowledge that perhaps their absence can be just as instructive, and we have chosen this timeslot to remain an empty room, for quiet contemplation.
In respect to their circumstances and in solidarity with the loss their absence represents to us all, we invite visitors to experience the stillness of this moment, and ask for respectful silence in solidarity with all those who are suffering as we speak.
