States of Being is dedicated to Jack Shainman Gallery's social and racial justice work. It is an evolving program of interventions, artworks, and community outreach, and is a place to collaborate with voices and creatives beyond the gallery's immediate organization. States of Being also provides resources for civic engagement, such as voter information, and includes a Reading Room with titles on art and racial justice selected by artists and members of our community.
Jack Shainman Gallery has always sought to bring a diverse viewpoint to the art world, and it is vital we continue to expand our scope to include the communities represented in the art we exhibit. States of Being is part of a commitment to amplify these voices, not only through artistic expression, but through widespread action.
