Thea Quiray Tagle on teaching visual art and performance in this political moment

0

IAS faculty member Thea Quiray Tagle published an invited piece in the San Francisco-based publication Art Practical special issue on art and political crisis. Her contribution, “Teaching and Talking about Art and Performance in Unpresidented Times (some thoughts for other instructors and artists)," offers the following provocation for instructors of art history, visual arts, and performance studies: “In our rush to find new ‘political art’ for these times, why don’t we also look to those who have been resisting this whole time?” Foregrounding the labor and artistic production of women of color, Black and indigenous women, queer and trans artists, she contends, is necessary for ...
