Moving the Margins: Many Small Gestures
The High Impact Practices (HIPs) grant will inspire meaningful actions using art. Funding will support the research, development, collaboration, and production of a responsive solo art exhibition titled Many Small Gestures for The Corner Gallery at the Jessie Ball DuPont Center in Spring 2022.
This solo exhibition is part of Moving the Margins, a residency program developed by curator Shawana Brooks that matches artists with nonprofits and grassroots organizations, current tenants of the Jessie Ball DuPont Center. Together, artist, students, and nonprofit organizations become a Cohort of Change-makers hosting community conversations to address intersectional themes and shared interests. Such conversations are the seeds of the creative process that materializes in artwork for an exhibition that transforms the vacant retail space at The Jessie, on the corner of Ocean and Adams Streets in Downtown, The Corner Gallery.
Once installation is complete, students will serve as facilitators, walking the public through the installation during special events. This service and community-based learning experience will bring students a unique opportunity to engage with the diverse public presenting the work they were involved in creating.
