In support of Emerson’s Asian community and community members of Asian descent, we are gathering and holding space to convey the values we espouse: That Emerson is a community of “respect and equal treatment for all people of all backgrounds, orientations, beliefs, and physical capabilities.”
Join Intercultural Student Affairs in coming together over a light dinner, and practicing what we preach: showing up for each other in solidarity.
Join the Emerson Prison Initiative for their spring event, a screening of True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality, followed by a Q&A with Rahsaan Hall and Tanekwah Hinds from the American Civil Liberties Union.
True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality follows public interest attorney Bryan Stevenson’s struggle to create greater fairness in the criminal justice system, and shows how racial injustice emerged, evolved, and continues to threaten the country, challenging viewers to confront it.
For more than three decades, Stevenson, founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, has advocated on behalf of the poor, the incarcerated, and the condemned, seeking to eradicate racial discrimination in the system. Following the film, Rahsaan Hall and Tanekwah Hinds from the ACLU will lead a Q&A.
Rahsaan Hall is the director of the Racial Justice Program for the ACLU Massachusetts. Through legislative advocacy, litigation and community engagement, the program works on issues that deeply impact communities of color and historically disenfranchised communities.
Tanekwah Hinds is the Racial Justice Community Advocate for the ACLU Massachusetts where she develops relationships and creates advocacy opportunities for organizations, leaders, and activists in communities of color.
The durational works included in spacetime (x, y, x + t) investigate the dynamic relationships between objects, their materiality and demonstrate how an idea, object, or artistic concept can exist across time, multiple media and physical locations.
Join us for an informal gallery walk through of spacetime with the exhibition curator Leonie Bradbury as she discusses the various artists and works on view and her research interest in ‘art as event.’
Spacetime (x, y, x + t) is a multi-dimensional exhibition that features experimental works by regional and international artists, features digital projections, 3D printed objects, inkjet prints, virtual reality drawings, video, site specific light installation, and a dancing robot.
The exhibition is on view January 22 – March 15. Emerson’s Media Art Gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday, from 12:00-7:00 pm. The exhibition and related programming are free and open to the public.
