Art Exhibition | Organize Your Own: The Politics and Poetics of Self-Determination Movements
- Monday, April 16, 2018 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM
- Joann Cole Mitte FLEX Gallery
This exhibition runs through May 2, 2018.
Curated by Daniel Tucker, "Organize Your Own" features new works by contemporary artists and poets responding to archival materials related to the history of white people organizing in white neighborhoods, in keeping with the mandate from the Black Power movement to “organize your own” community against racism. "Organize Your Own" was launched in 2016 as an exhibition and event series, inspired by historically activist working-class white neighborhoods in Philadelphia (the October 4th Organization) and Chicago (the Young Patriots Organization). Materials from these events have since been collected and published in book form. Its installation at the Texas State Galleries is part of a multi-city tour.
