September 7 – November 10
on view in the Clinton Adams Gallery
This fall the University of New Mexico Art Museum and College of Fine Arts, in partnership with For Freedoms, will present a series of programs and political activations for the 50 State Initiative – the largest creative collaboration in US History.
University of New Mexico Art Museum will create an interactive gallery space inviting visitors to collectively define notions of freedom. Based on participatory prompts in previous For Freedoms projects, the gallery will serve as a place to reflect upon our “Freedom Of,” “Freedom From,” Freedom For,” and Freedom To.” Faculty and students in Visual Arts, Dance, and Theater will create diverse programming and educational opportunities focused on a range of topics exploring art, politics, freedom, and civic discourse. Through this partnership, the College of Fine Arts, UNM Art Museum and For Freedoms will engage the campus and greater Albuquerque community in discussions related to national and local political issues.
Please check back for an updated schedule of student activations.
The 50 State Initiative is “centered around the vital work of artists,” where exhibitions and related projects will “model how arts institutions can become civic forums for action and discussion of values, place, and patriotism.” – For Freedoms Organizers
