Race and Revolution: Still Separate – Still Unequal at Smack Mellon:
This exhibit looks at the enduring legacy of school segregation. Seventeen artists, most of them classroom teachers and one of them a high school student, share their talents and firsthand experiences of what schools in the 21st Century United States look like.
As a challenge to my art-making practice I've taken a brief departure from the media I regularly work with in order to exploit the visual language of the High School Championship banner, a large tapestry which typically celebrates a school's varied athletic triumphs. Instead, I have created a series of "anti-banners" which present a few startling statistics on the testing, policing, and incarceration of Black and Latino students.
