We Are Never Never Other, by artist Aram Han Sifuentes (b. 1986), is a large-scale protest banner installed on the facade of the Pulitzer Arts Foundation in St. Louis, MO. Earlier this year, Sifuentes brought her Protest Banner Lending Library to the Pulitzer, where she offered workshops on creating banners to be added to the Library. Here, she’s created her own public banner intended to represent the voice of the disenfranchised, both calling attention to and standing in defiance of the act of “othering,” or alienating, one another.
We Are Never Never Other was commissioned by the Pulitzer as a part of the artist’s residency there and is on view through August 31, 2018. This banner evokes the voice of the artist and the individuals who have participated in the lending library since it began in 2016.
