These TIMELINES were created to show the intersection of art and activism by artists and workers of color from 1960s to the present. By collaboratively mapping out the history of activism by people of color we can begin to consider their role in shaping our cultural institutions and the implications within the larger struggle against repression that affects us on a personal and collective level.
‘Timelines’ workshops are collaborative art-making workshop. After a brief introduction participants will add graphics, images, and text on to blank timelines. We will have some art supplies, but participants are free to bring their own art materials, images for collage, texts, graphics, and clippings related to artists and workers of color. We also have a printer for printing additional graphics or texts for the timeline. Each session will span two decades and when possible begin with an introduction by an invited guest artist, historian, or researcher.
