Artist Response

January 16 – April 16, 2018
New Media Wall

Artist Response is an ongoing initiative that highlights how artists have used creative strategies to respond to historical and contemporary social crises through direct action, solidarity efforts, and critical reflection. In Spring 2018, Artist Response will include contributions from the Documents of Resistance project on the history of art and activism by artists of color (SMFA & Medford), James McAnally on critical art production in St Louis in the wake of the 2014 killing of Michael Brown and ongoing social-justice protests (SMFA), and a mixtape of creative activist tactics (Medford) by Houston artist, Carrie Schneider.
