Part of event series: Creative Citizens Series


Organized by

Creative Citizens in Action (CCA@CCA)

Event description

The Creative Citizens in Action Exhibition features work by CCA students and faculty that visually complements The Materiality of Resistance Symposium, a convening of writers, artists, designers, curators, and archivists to consider historical and contemporary stories where the materiality of making contributes to socio-cultural change. Dispersed throughout CCA’s Nave, the installations, project presentations, and workshops are the combined result of an open call for student work and faculty-directed curricular collaborations. 

Organized by the Creative Citizens in Action initiative (CCA@CCA), in collaboration with the History of Art and Visual Culture program, CCA faculty, students, and staff, this exhibition connects the symposium to the Deborah and Kenneth Novack Creative Citizens Series, an annual series of public programs focused on creative activism. This semester’s program is led by 2024 CCA@CCA Faculty Coordinator Nilgun Bayraktar in collaboration with the Exhibitions & Public Programs Department.

Please join us for a reception on Friday, March 8, from 4:45 to 5:30pm, before the Symposium's closing event: Rogue Gestures (Excerpts) by Nava Dance Theatre.

  • Sara Cruz (BFA Sculpture)
