Seat’s Taken was a group exhibition designed to continue the community-wide dialogue initiated by ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center’s recent exhibition, RACE: Are We So Different?. Seat’s Taken aimed to move the discussion beyond race to examine the larger issue of why human beings wrong one another, as race is just one variable in a complex equation. The exhibition examined human interaction, questioned the way we choose to navigate the world, and challenged our reactions to the unfamiliar, uncomfortable, and different.
