    Sable Elyse Smith’s And Here is a List of Names is a sculptural twinning of photography and roadside signage that examines the idea of ‘the public’ that it addresses and how language and images shape collective identity. The image offers views of violence, black male subjectivity, gender slippage and police/citizen interaction, rendering fragmented narratives just as its mural backdrop suggest. In the park, this vernacular image produced in a prison for private consumption confronts the public sphere that perpetuates its production.
