October Newsletter

Oct. 19, 2020

Dear friends and colleagues,

We hope that this email finds you ok amidst the pandemic and political situation. As we work to care for ourselves and others, we’re also learning modes of finding joy and belonging, together.

With that in mind (and body), we’ll continue our new monthly ritual, Present!, this Sunday, October 25, from 11am–1pm EST. It’s a virtual forum to gather and explore timely topics together with special guests from near and far. This Sunday’s show will explore the intersections of art and policy-making, curating and care, with some robots and group karaoke for good measure! Our guests include collaborative artist (and Buffalo native) Asad Raza, interdisciplinary scientist and scholar Christian Faubel, and moCa Cleveland Chief Curator and FRONT Artistic Team member Courtenay Finn, alongside contributions from Christopher Kulendran Thomas & Annika Kuhlmann and others.

The event will take place on Zoom and is free and open to all. To participate, please register here — or you also can watch the show live on our website.

Last month’s episode, featuring Kameelah Janan Rasheed, RA Washington, and Tamara Sussman, is now available online.

As the daylight hours wind down, we’ve also been adding to our listening and watchingand reading lists. We'd love to hear what's been keeping you company. Feel free to drop us an email –– we'll be featuring some of your favorites online!

We’re lucky to have you all here and be in this strange time together. We look forward to seeing you soon on the other side of the week.

Virtual Hugs,

Allison, Fred, Prem, Sarah, Tina
