shanna_merola1

Artist, activist, and National Lawyers Guild worker Shanna Merola is coming to the Institute for the Humanities.

Monday, March 6
3:30-5:30 p.m.
Institute for the Humanities
Osterman Common Room

202 S. Thayer

From the Institute for the Humanities website:

In her lecture, “Expect Resistance,” Merola will discuss the various roles that art and activism play in her work with grassroots movements across the country—from the historic fight to reclaim Richmond, Virginia’s African Burial Ground to the deeply embattled struggle over water privatization in Detroit and Flint, Michigan. Within her different bodies of work Merola will also draw parallels between historic flashpoints in American history, through an archival exploration of the Detroit 67 Rebellion to firsthand documentation from the front lines of Ferguson, Missouri and Standing Rock, North Dakota.

Merola’s talk will be followed by an opening reception for her pop-up exhibition Another Country. Read the rest here.
