Exhibition Opening: Art for the Future – Artists Call and Central American Solidarities

Thursday, January 20 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free

Tufts University Art Galleries reopen for the spring semester, as well as opens the exhibition “Art for the Future: Artists Call and Central American Solidarities,” which focuses on the seminal 1980s activist campaign and will be on view until April 24. Growing out of the friendships, solidarity networks and political organizing amongst artists and activists such as Daniel Flores y Ascencio, Lucy Lippard, Doug Ashford, Leon Golub and Coosje van Bruggen, the campaign resulted in exhibitions, performances, poetry readings, film screenings, concerts, and other cultural and educational events in more than 27 cities across the United States and Canada. The exhibition highlights Artists Call’s history through a selection of activities and works from the 31 exhibitions and over 1,100 artists who participated in New York City, and references Artists Call’s legacy today in new forms of inter-American solidarity networks and visual alliances.

An opening celebration, featuring Lucy Lippard as keynote speaker, will be held via Zoom on January 27.

Please consult the Tufts Arts Galleries website for the latest information on COVID-related requirements when visiting the galleries.
