Art Against Racism brings together public and fine art that explores anti-racism and connects this art with communities. The art is organized here into online galleries, so that people around the world can reflect on their beliefs, be inspired towards change and create racial justice in their communities.
In partnership with West Windsor Arts Council, located in West Windsor, NJ, this exhibition invites artists to explore what it means to live in a nation or world designed around social and economic justice without the ills of structural racism. Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Beloved Community” represents a global vision where all people share in the wealth of a healed planet. Submissions that speak to or re-envision society’s transformation into a world of healthy people, relationships and communities in personal or public contexts were encouraged. Works on paper/canvas, 3d works, digital media, videos, music compositions, text-based works, documentation of community actions, zines and performative actions/ their scripts, were all welcome. Also check out the archived 2022 MANIFESTING BELOVED COMMUNITY GALLERY.
Memorial.Monument.Movement. (MMM) launched in 2020. It’s an effort to gather and archive the racial justice focused public art and fine art born of the global protests against anti-Blackness. Watch the virtual launch.
The MMM Visual Culture Gallery is a collection of images of art, in many forms, created around the world in response to the ascension of the BLM movement and the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and too many others across this nation by law enforcement. Enter the gallery.
