The Big Take-Away is the closing event for "If All of This Were Silence." Gallery visitors will dismantle the exhibition by taking away books featured in the installation. The Take-Away reflects Haug's collection process and the way that both social movements and texts become dispersed across time and space. Haug's practice underscores how that different forms of knowledge are created when texts are brought together in new configurations in specific moments. People learn through bits and pieces, creating narratives through dispersed informational fragments. When people take books home with them, they are forming their own libraries and educational frameworks.

"If All of This Were Silence" is an interactive installation that reflects the conflicting and radically varied ways women have strategized to control the impact of patriarchal culture on their lives.

As part of the exhibition visitors will be able to explore "Permanent Library", a piece that displays hundreds of books written by women in a single room. "Permanent Library" documents women's diverse lived experience and includes everything from Angela Davis' "Women, Race and Class" to the best-selling dating book "The Rules" by Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider.

All books are free.
