We're thrilled to announce that a course and an exhibition centered around Who We Be will be opening on March 30, 2016!
The course, running for 10 weeks, will feature visits by 3 MacArthur geniuses (Carrie Mae Weems, Rick Lowe, and Amalia Mesa-Bains), director Nate Parker, Brooklyn Museum director Anne Pasternak, acclaimed Bay Area artists Marc Bamuthi Joseph and Favianna Rodriguez, and many more!
More information on the class, which will be open to the public on Wednesday evenings at 6pm, can be found here. Lectures and panels will be filmed and available via podcast about a week after each event.
The exhibition, curated by Jerome Reyes, Atheel El-Malik, and Jeff Chang, will open the same day at the Cantor Arts Center. Designed to accompany the book and the spring course, it will feature works by Glenn Ligon, Carrie Mae Weems, Byron Kim, Yong Soon Min, Daniel J. Martinez, Morrie Turner, Lorna Simpson, Howardena Pindell, Coco Fusco, Guillermo Gomez-Peña, and many more.
On April 4th, Jerome Reyes and Jeff Chang will host a special lecture on the show at the Cantor. More info can be found here.
We also highly recommend Christian L. Frock's amazing show "Take This Hammer" at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
Jeff's piece "A Justice and Equity Index" is included in the exhibition program—downloadable here—and the exhibition features works by Favianna Rodriguez, Oree Original, CultureStrike, and many more of our friends!
We hope to see you soon...
