ALTERNATIVE CURRENCIES: TACTICS FOR STAYING RELEVANT AND RADICAL

ALTERNATIVE CURRENCIES: TACTICS FOR STAYING RELEVANT AND RADICAL
Saturday, October 3rd '15 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
  • Alternative Currencies

This forum gathers independent contemporary art groups and spaces from around the country in a collective exploration of what it means to be (and stay) “alternative.”  Using the vibrant artist-run spaces that flourished in Mexico City during the 1990s as a backdrop, a diverse group of artists and organizations will present their own tactics for staying relevant and radical in 2015.

Participants:

INCA  (Detroit / Seattle) /// Aeron Bergman and Alejandra Salinas
Threewalls (Chicago) /// Abigail Satinsky and Danny Orendorff
Possible Projects/Press (Atlanta) /// Rachel and Trevor Reese
Data Garden (Philadelphia) /// Jon Shapiro
The Luminary (St. Louis) /// James McAnally
KCHUNG Radio (Los Angeles) /// Luke Fischbeck
Galeria Perdida (Mexico / Brooklyn)
The Suburban (Milwaukee) /// Alexander Herzog
