Future Relations Opening Reception

Loading Events

Future Relations: A Resource for Radical Teaching presents F.T.P. is the first exhibition of SOMArts 2019-20 Curatorial Residency season. With a combined 30 years of teaching experience, curators Fred Alvarado, Thomas Jones, and David Petrelli reimagine SOMArts’ Main Gallery into a site for collective liberation and hope for educators, community organizers, and youth alike.

Critically engaged teachers work collaboratively with young people in confronting and subverting systemic oppression. Through an Ethnic Studies, social justice oriented lens, Future Relations offers alternatives to traditional models of education by presenting works that underscore the importance of experiential knowledge and community cultural wealth. 

Opening with a free, all ages reception on Friday, November 15th, 6–9pm, the evening program includes curatorial remarks, artist activations, and performances by Tongo Eisen-Martin, Cio Cas, Ricardo Rivera, Shem Korngold, Carver Cordes, DJ Petrelli, and DJ Lechuza Blanc!

In support of the fundraising efforts for Marina Perez, all food and Ramp Gallery art sales will be donated to her GoFundMe page. Learn more about Marina’s story and donate directly by clicking here!
