The University of Arizona Museum of Art and Archive of Visual Arts

Yes, and…why can’t we start with the truth?


February 13, 2020 @ 4:00 p.m.

Using strategies from stand-up comedy and improv, artist sheri crider will discuss the curatorial process of the exhibition Other TARGET/s while highlighting the inspiration, artistic processes and community work that connect today’s activism with decades of civil rights struggles. How can we expand our immediate spaces for creative civic engagement? Can we create and demand equitable communities?

sheri crider is a visual artist and a civil rights dreamer who lives and works in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After many years of addicted homelessness, sheri attended the University of Arizona on an academic tuition waiver and a fine arts scholarship. She received her BFA in Ceramics, Printmaking and Queer Theory. For the past decade, sheri has woven a multi-disciplinary practice that includes a platform for community and artists manifested in the Sanitary Tortilla Factory, as well as a studio practice dedicated to works at the intersection of personal experience, empathy and equity.

This event is part of the Spring 2020 Museum Lecture Series.
