Artist Talk | Aesthetics of an Uprising

If the future is to be reformed with the racial and cultural values we say we want, then we have to take our time to hear, see, and feel the aesthetics of other worlds. This event will attempt to take inventory of the processes of constructing new spaces, where that process is, where it shouldn't be, and where it can go. How do art, architecture, interior design, and landscaping function in rebuilding our cities outside of and away from colonization? Where will the funding come from, and where should it go? And how do we learn and unlearn the aesthetics that have held cultures hostages, and how do we set ourselves free?
