LA-area cultural institutions have organized several projects around the upcoming election
. One of them is artist Aram Han Sifuentes’s “Official Unofficial Voting Station,” now online at the Skirball Cultural Center, which aims to give voice to the millions of Americans who cannot legally vote.
With her project, Sifuentes hopes to question the US’s exclusionary voting system:
“People talk about voting as if it’s the answer. It’s so important, I’m not discrediting it, but it’s also important to question the system of voting as well, a discriminatory and racist system.”
