Guest curator Amy Zion gives a virtual tour of Evidence, a group exhibition featuring the work of artists Brian Belott, Petrit Halilaj, Ulrike Müller, Oscar Murillo, and Alanis Obomsawin.
Speaking to each project in the exhibition, Zion reflects on the artists’ foregrounding of art by children in their practices, and the profound insights that children’s art can offer about the world we live in.
