Alternative Spaces: That Was Then/This Is Now

Saturday, June 23, 2018, 2:00pm

Since their flourishing in the mid 1970s, alternative art spaces have had an illustrious history—from the championing of new media and performance, which were outside the purview of commercial galleries, to the role they played in identifying and supporting artists that defined the 1980s, to their reconceptualization by a new generation of artists and curators in the early part of the 21st century. Join us for this conversation with director Hamza Walker and participants to be announced to discuss the changing cultural and socio-political landscape undergirding the role of alternative spaces over the past forty years.

All events are first come, first serve until we reach capacity. We recommend an early arrival and ride share when possible.
