"'Create art that challenges the colonization of the imagination.'
Emory Douglas invites artists to engage with the above challenge and 11 others included in his Political Artist Manifesto. This participatory session will establish an intergenerational dialogue on the strategies and responsibilities of artists engaged in political struggle. Douglas will draw on his experience creating powerful images that depict the reality of racial injustice in America and his work as the resident Revolutionary Artist and Minister of Culture for the Black Panther Party from 1967 to the 1980s. Participants are invited to bring their own reflections on the possibilities for activist art-making today, as well as their responses to Douglas’s manifesto. The conversion will be moderated by artist, writer, and educator Colette Gaiter.
This program is for anyone who identifies as an artist and/or designer and will take place over Zoom..."
