Liberté

Themed Commission Program

This program is the first in a trilogy called Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité.

With this first program, TSV commissioned five artists to define freedom in terms of their own experiences and convictions. Surprisingly, these artists have found liberty to be primarily a state of mind rather than ...
