“Somewhere in Advance of Nowhere: Freedom Dreams in Contemporary Art” lauds the vital role of artists in dismantling broken systems, envisioning new shared realities, and building future alternatives. Drawing inspiration from Robin D.G. Kelley’s seminal book, “Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination,” the exhibition takes up his provocation that “without new visions, we don’t know what to build, only what to knock down.”Nico Wheadon
I don’t want the work that we do to be co-opted in the moment. I also don’t want it to be presented as a quick answer to something that’s slow work.Miguel Luciano
“Mapping Resistance: The Young Lords in El Barrio” is a public art project about the activist history of the Young Lords in East Harlem, featuring the photography of Hiram Maristany (official photographer of the Young Lords and a founding member in NY).
