Limited Capacity seats available

Glenn Kaino—an artist who transforms conventional materials and forms through a process of working that mobilizes the languages, logics, and economies of other creative disciplines as raw elements in artistic production—will lead With Drawn Arms, an engagement based on his exhibition created in 2018 with Tommie Smith. A half-century before NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee, gold medal sprinter Tommie Smith raised a fist at the 1968 Summer Olympic Games in Mexico to protest abuse of human rights around the world and in response to the struggle for civil rights in the United States. Fifty years later, in this interactive workshop, participants will draw using Kaino’s exhibit as inspiration. By bridging the past and present, With Drawn Arms powerfully resonates in the current moment of reckoning with racial injustice in America.
