Join artists Bridget Elmer and Emily Larned, the duo behind Impractical Labor in Service of the Speculative Arts (ILSSA), joined by Exhibitions Director Richard Klein and Director of Education Namulen Bayarsaihan in a conversation about their participatory mail art ballot project the day after the presidential inauguration. The ILSSA Ballot for Twenty Twentyinvited one hundred participants to reflect on the year 2020 and the presidential election by filling out responses on custom-designed letterpress ballots they received in the mail from Elmer and Larned and mailing them back to the Museum. This project and the submitted ballots are on view at The Aldrich in concurrence with the Twenty Twenty exhibition.
