Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate

February 24, 2016 - April 8, 2016

with an opening reception on
Wednesday, February 24, 2015
from 5:30-7:30 PM

Co-curated by Thalia Vrachopoulos and Katie Knight 

Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate showcases the diverse work of 39 artists who have transformed thousands of anti-Semitic and racist books into an uplifting and dynamic exhibition. The exhibition is visually powerful, thought-provoking, sometimes humorous, always challenging, and ultimately deeply moving.

The story of Speaking Volumes began in 2003 when the Montana Human Rights Network in Helena, Montana, acquired more than 4,000 copies of white supremacist books from a defecting leader of one of the most virulent hate groups in the nation. The Human Rights Network, through a partnership with the Holter Museum of Art in Helena, implemented its vision of transforming the books into works of art with a positive message.

Rarely does an exhibition stimulate so much conversation and creative response among children, youth, and adults. Speaking Volumes: Transforming Hate encourages audiences to explore creative strategies for transforming hate. Visitors often participate in dialogue to share their own stories and listen to others, deepening empathy for those who are perceived as "different," and encouraging respect for social justice.
