Tour of Art for the Future with curator Abigail Satinsky

Saturday, April 15, 11am–12pm

Please join us for a guided tour of Art for the Future: Artists Call and Central American Solidarities by exhibition co-curator Abigail Satinsky. The exhibition focuses on the seminal 1980s activist campaign, Artists Call Against US Intervention in Central America. The exhibition highlights Artists Call’s history through a selection of activities and works from the 31 exhibitions and over 1,100 artists who participated in New York City and references Artists Call’s legacy today in new forms of inter-American solidarity networks and visual alliances. This exhibition is organized by Tufts University Art Galleries (TUAG) and curated by Erina Duganne, Associate Professor of Art History, Texas State University and Abigail Satinsky, TUAG Curator & Head of Public Engagement.
