You Are Free assembles a group of international artists whose work is fueled by the intangible notion of freedom. Ultimately, it is an elusive, esoteric, often idealized, and highly individual concept of freedom that, for these artists, is most often made manifest through the visceral experience of music. For many of us, it is a disruption, a sound that changes everything, a song that makes you less innocent, while simultaneously making you feel immortal. A place situated outside conventions or societal constraints, where changing the world or starting a revolution is not unrealistic. Whether they are musicians themselves, they incorporate music into their practice, use musical tropes as ready-mades, or seek to comment on society at large; their work stretches definitions in an attempt to represent this elusive and indefinable concept of freedom. Working across disciplines and mediums, these artists aim to mirror that initial impulse, that utopian and teenage dream, coupled with a critical reckoning with the world around them.
