Join ArtTable for a conversation with the creative collaborators behind- Come to Your Census: Who Counts in America? a digital art and civic experience organized by Yerba Buena Arts Center as part of Art+Action’s arts-driven COME TO YOUR CENSUS arts-driven campaign. As part of ArtTable’s curatorial perspective virtual programming, we’ll be speaking with the curators, artists, and creative collaborators involved in this initiative, as an important model of how now more than ever, arts institutions are embracing collaboration and leaning into their role to advocate with and inspire our communities.
This event will be followed by a 10 minute Census-taking ‘happy hour.’ For all who take their 2020 Census and send proof to Art+Action, they will be gifted an art sweatshirt by artists Arleene Correa Valencia + Ana Teresa Fernández as part of their collaboration SOMOS VISIBLES. This ongoing project takes a political stance on visibility through the use of high visibility ready-to-wear safety gear present throughout many labor industries, and as it relates to the invisibility of the undocumented in the U.S.—and within COME TO YOUR CENSUS campaign, as it relates to being seen and counted in the 2020 Census. Read more about SOMOS VISIBLES—made possible through the generous support of Levi’s—and the artists’ work here.
