Closing Curator Talk for Strange Fire Collective | Agency

Friday, March 4, 2016, 5:00 - 6:00

Please join us at 5:00 pm on March 4th for a closing curator talk for the Strange Fire Collective Exhibition, Agency. FREE, Public Welcome.

 

AGENCY | At the heart of every political and social movement is a question about who deserves to have power and control, whether over territory, access, rights, or freedoms. Around the world, we are witnessing struggles connected to race, sexuality, gender, and class. The artists in this exhibition ask questions about who has agency and in what situations, working from their own experiences within these complex social and political forces.

 

The Strange Fire artist collective is a group of interdisciplinary artists, curators, and writers focused on work that engages with current social and political forces. We seek to create a venue for work that critically questions the dominant social hierarchy and are dedicated to highlighting work made by women, people of color, and queer and trans artists.

 

Our collective practice is centered around increasing the visibility of meaningful work and creating dialogue and community through publications, exhibitions, and events.   We are committed to making our projects accessible, affordable, and socially relevant. Strange Fire Collective was formed in 2015 by Jess T. Dugan, Rafael Soldi, Zora J. Murff, and Hamidah Glasgow.
