Exhibition: To Shoot a Kite, at the CUE Art Foundation

“In June 2012, Sesame Street introduced Alex, a new character on its online interactive program Little Children, Big Challenges. In the short educational video, Alex admits his father is in prison after skirting questions from his friends on his dad’s whereabouts. What does it say about the United States when one of its most popular early-childhood education programs finds the issue of incarceration widespread enough to incorporate it into its curriculum? Alex is one of approximately 2.7 million American children who have a parent currently incarcerated (one in every 28 children), two-thirds of whom are in for nonviolent crimes.”

Don’t miss this exhibition, To Shoot a Kite, now on view at the CUE Art Foundation in NY City until August 2nd. The exhibition was curated by Yaelle Amir.
