Reprise Gallery Talk Featuring ‘Of Present Bodies’ and ‘InterActivism’

For each of our main exhibitions, we host a public gallery talk. This is a time for the artists, curators, and viewers to come together and discuss the concepts, the process, and the resulting works of the current exhibition.

Currently showing in our galleries is REPRISE: 40 to the Fore – not only  a tribute to our 40th anniversary, but also to AAC’s longstanding role in spotlighting important social issues –  this show rethinks four ground-breaking exhibitions from our archives. The selections reflect AAC’s commitment to finding new talent, and being at the forefront of contemporary art in our region.

For each remix, we invited a collaborating curator to help recommend artists and refine the scope of each show. Because this exhibition encompasses four curators, and 14 artists, we chose to host two gallery talks. The first one happened last weekend, but the second is coming up next Saturday.

Join us on September 6 at 1 pm to talk with the artists and curators of ‘Home(again)’ and ‘AIDS Unanswered’

Below are photos of our most recent gallery talk on Saturday, August 23.
