First Friday: Lunchtime Engagement Tour – Collective Action Archive: Redux

Terri Smith

May 3, 12:30 PM–1:00 PM

Join us for a free, public tour of Collective Action Archive: Redux on Friday April 5th from 12:30 – 1:00. We will get an overview of the show and focus on collectives that access activism through food! Join Terri C Smith, our creative director for a free, casual, conversational walkthrough of the exhibition.

On the first Friday of each month your lunch can include a twenty-minute tour of a thematic, group exhibition with FSW creative director, Terri C Smith. We will focus on several artist/activist groups in our current show, “Collective Action Archive: Redux,” including RAGGA NYC, WAGE (Working Artists for a Greater Economy) and Paper Tiger TV.

If you are new to contemporary art and want some guidance in understanding the work or if you are someone who loves to learn more about exhibitions you enjoy via a curator tour, first Fridays are your Fridays! “Lunch Engagement” tours are free and open to the public. Drop ins are welcome but RSVPs help us plan. RSVP info@franklinstreetworks.org.

“Collective Action Archive: Redux,” an exhibition exploring the intersections between art and activism, featuring materials from dozens of U.S. artist/activist collectives. The exhibition expands on the 2013 show, “Collective Action Archive,” which was curated collaboratively by Franklin Street Works with Purchase College, SUNY and then was accessioned into the college’s library archive. The updated group exhibition features materials from the Library’s archive along with new items from collectives who were not included in or had not yet formed at the time of the 2013 show. In the spirit of a living archive, new contributions will be added throughout the exhibition’s run.
