If the Occupy Wall Street movement is criticized for being inchoate, it is because the protesters are speaking a language that is new and therefore not well understood. The generational shift at the heart of this burgeoning movement, seen in its vocabulary and medium, seems to be central to the way it is being misunderstood. 

This is what democracy looks like will consider this historical moment from the outside and from within, to work through, in real time, what exactly the Occupy Wall Street movment is, the language it speaks and the promise it offers. It will include posters, photos, videos, art, costumes and other relevant ephemera.There will also be a series of events to coincide with the exhibit.

Gallatin Galleries hours of operation: Monday through Friday, 9am to 5pm daily
