Past Due

Artists consider reparations, debt, and currency while exploring transactional, moral, and communal accountability. They offer printed pieces, original texts, adornment, sculptures, net art, and performance to demonstrate how the United States could make reparations to American descendants of slavery and state sanctioned violence. Each has devised their own methods of measure, collection, or offering with approaches ranging from popular culture to myth.
