    Framing the Trap. bart fitzgerald

    home school is excited to host an artist talk by local artist, thinker, and party visionary bart fitzgerald! Join us on 27 Oct at the Reed College Chapel, 6-8p for "Framing the Trap: Postmodern Aesthetics, Themes and Theories from the Trap." This talk is facilitated in collaboration with Stephanie Synder, director of the Cooley Gallery. Snacks and refreshments will be available courtesy of Reed College. This talk will be streamed live online for remote viewers.

    Framing the Trap further explores the theoretical claims made throughout bart fitzgerald’s recent works around trap music -- its sonic histories, relation to the black church and spirituality, and postmodern aesthetic practices. fitzgerald seeks to situate Trap Music within conversations around the longstanding tradition of sound in the black radical tradition.

    bart fitzgerald explores black sociality, religion and queerness through a lens of liberation theology as base ideology for radical living. They make work as a visual artist, writer, lecturer and curator of vibrant life for black folks in Portland, OR. Their work has been presented at Reed College, Newspace Center for Photography, Portland African American Leadership Forum, Black Lives Matter: Portland and The Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA). They have received commissions and funding from c3:initiative, Regional Arts & Culture Council, The Urban League of Portland, and numerous local and national organizations. Most recently, they were selected as a recipient of the Ford Family Foundation’s Golden Spot Award that is granted in connection with an artist residency at Caldera Arts Center in Sisters, OR.

    Nat Turner revival: sermon on the mount

    Join home school on 9/15 at ELIOT 314 @ Reed College, 630-830p for a talk by local curatorial duo Nat Turner Project (Melanie Stevens and maximiliano)! As always, this talk is free and open to the public. We'll stream online for remote viewers, and snacks and refreshments will be available.

    Nat Turner Project allows artists of color to go beyond the usual initial expositions inherent in presenting art borne of marginalized perspectives to a dominant culture; allowing artists of color freedom to create or express their own language within and without the parameters of racial commodification or designation. NTP creates an environment of inclusivity, a communal harbor for artists previously silenced by institutional constraints, and actively provides priority spaces to artists of color; allowing others the privilege of viewership from an outsider role. Nat Turner Project, not just a name, but a statement of artistic freedom.

    Melanie Stevens is an artist, illustrator, and writer. She is co-founder and co-curator of Nat Turner Project. She is the creator of the graphic novel Black Picket Fences and the co-founder, editor, and an instructor of Miss Anthology, an organization that supports and publishes racially and economically diverse young comic artists who identify as female or genderqueer. Stevens received her Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from Yale University and her Masters of Fine Arts degree in visual studies from the Pacific Northwest College of Art.

    maximiliano makes art in the trap. PERFORMANCE x VIDEO x POETRY x COLLABORATION. maximiliano’s practice explores diaspora, the multiplicity of identity, ritual x mythos, brujerix, healing of trauma, the body, and black sovereignty x autonomy. They are one half of Cvllejerx, a performance x fashion collaboration, and are recipients of the Andy Warhol Foundation and Precipice (2016). Nat Turner Project: a radical art space are C3 initiative artists-n-residence for 2017. maximiliano recieved their MFA from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in 2017. They have performed, exhibited, and curated at S1, Disjecta, Gallery 114; C3 Initiative, and UNA Gallery in Oklahoma, Texas, and Washington.

    This talk is part of home school’s 2017 curriculum in conjunction with the Cooley Gallery exhibition (self), on view from August 29 through October 1, 2017.

    For the Cooley exhibition, the Nat Turner Project has created a special research library accompanied by a video chronicle of their first exhibition season.

    Aria Dean: Notes on Blaccelerationism

    Join us in PSYCH 105 at Reed College for the next home school talk of 2017! Aria Dean joins us remotely to deliver "Notes on Blaccelerationism." As usual, we will livestream the talk for remote viewers, and we'll have snacks and refreshments for local audience!

    First of all, these are notes toward a blaccelerationism. This is not a Theory of Blaccelerationism. It is not a Black Accelerationism, that is: a ‘black perspective on accelerationism,’ nor is it an accelerationist theory of blackness. Nor is it a critique of accelerationism from the position of blackness or black studies.

    This is an experiment with the claim that accelerationism has always already existed in the territory of blackness whether it knows it or not. It speaks what has already been spoken, and - however non-consensually - breeds thoughts together to illuminate what already is and has always been possible.

    And, of course, we enter knowing that if you lie down with dogs you might rise with fleas.

    ARIA DEAN is an artist, writer, and curator based in Los Angeles, CA. She currently holds the position of assistant curator of net art & digital culture at Rhizome. Her writing has been featured in Artforum, Art in America, The New Inquiry, Real Life Magazine, Topical Cream Magazine, Mousse Magazine, CURA Magazine, and X-TRA Contemporary Art Quarterly. She has exhibited at Arcadia Missa (London), Knockdown Center (NY), and Chateau Shatto (LA) among other venues. Dean has spoken at the New Museum, UCLA, The New School, and Machine Project. She also co-directs Los Angeles project space As It Stands LA.

    This talk is part of the home school 2017 curriculum, which is funded by a Regional Arts and Culture Council project grant. This talk is also part of the public programming for (self), an exhibition at the Cooley Gallery at Reed College, curated by Stephanie Snyder and Samiya Bashir.

    Rewriting the Immigration Narrative

    What does it mean for Reed College to be a sanctuary institution? How do you currently contribute or wish to contribute to a safe space for undocumented students?

    Join us for dinner to deconstruct mainstream narratives of immigrantion and to debunk common misconceptions about undocumented immigrants.
