San Jose Museum of Art Future Supper

San Jose Museum of Art Future Supper

Description

The San Jose Museum of Art will develop a reading room and summer reading list of books on equity, diversity, and civic action. The reading room would be onsite at the museum, while an extended list of books would be available for check-out at the Martin Luther King Jr. Library with the goals of promoting a Town Hall that the museum will then host, engaging thought and dialogue prior, and offering resources for action. Coinciding with the Town Hall and "Reading Library", SJMA will have an exhibitions of works that address social justice issues, Rise UP Social Justice in Art from the collection of J. Michael Bewley. The reading lists being produced by the library are inspired by the voices of artists in the exhibition, including Alison Sarr, Kara Walker, Sadie Barnette, Enrique Chagoya, Robert Arneson, and Micklane Thomas, among others. In addition, San José Museum of Art will host Future Supper, a performance by Anna Martine Whitehead Chicago-based writer and artist Anna Martine Whitehead performs Future Supper, a public reading and meal. Future Supper is an opportunity for protected political education and consciousness-raising through art, food, and conversation operating on three key principles: the future relies on white people being versed in the practice of decentralizing themselves; the future relies on people of color being versed in the practice of joyful giving and receiving from one another; and the future is abundant.
