Decolonizing the White Box III

Event Navigation

This fall two large public forums gathered under the premise of “Decolonizing The White Box,” in response to artworld racism and, in specific, to the critique leveled at the Made in LA show at The Hammer Museum by writer Sesshu Foster. Both events drew large crowds. The first, led by Raquel Gutierrez, involved exercises and strategies to interrogate the dividing lines between aesthetics and politics. The second coincided with news of the non-indictment of the murderous cop in Ferguson. During a rather heated Q & A, panelist Ricardo A. Bracho called for a people of color artist meeting. This third event in the series is the response, developed by artists and organizers of color of LA.

This is an intentional people of color only event.

We welcome you to continue our conversations.We hope to create a dialogue which challenges and explores the mechanisms of power in the art world. We invite artists, organizers and all Angelenos of color to join us in an intimate exchange on race and representation, communities and the art market, and the (im)possibilities of artworld decolonization.

Saturday March 7th
7 to 10pm
Bring food to share- its a potluck!

This event was organized by Oscar Miguel Santos and a group of artists involved in both previous meetings.
