I’ve begun a series of interviews with artists and cultural workers whose practices are engaged with movements for social justice, including the recent Occupy Wall Street movement. These articles will be published every 2 weeks or so on SFMOMA’s Open Space blog.

Many of the artists I will interview are people whose practices I deeply admire. They  challenge the false divisions between art and resistance and use their practice to address oppression with the potential to initiate dialogue around issues of race, class, sexism, feminist and queer issues, and more. The first interview is with Sara Powell of Kaleidoscope Free Speech Zone and was written in effort to make visible her current struggle against eviction in the Mission District.
