In May, we will explore the exhibition LaToya Ruby Frazier: Monuments of Solidarity with assistant curator Caitlin Ryan. Artist-activist LaToya Ruby Frazier has used photography, text, moving images, and performance to revive and preserve forgotten stories of labor, gender, and race in the postindustrial era. Together, we will engage with this exhibition that surveys the full range of the artist’s practice, highlighting Frazier’s role as a social advocate and connector of the cultural and working classes in the 21st century.
