  • WCCW And CARLA Present: Rethinking Structures Book Club

    January 30, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

    Sunday, January 30, 1–2:30pm PST
    Hosted by: WCCW and CARLA
    Free

    The Rethinking Structures Book Club will focus on the intersections of social justice and art world justice. We will use art as a gateway into social justice, and social justice as a lens to rethink the art world. Each guest is a leader in the L.A. art community and will select a reading to present and discuss with the group. Together, we will discuss pathways forward that focus on community and care. The first session of this four-part program will feature Ceci Moss, and discuss As Radical, As Mother, As Salad, As Shelter: What Should Art Institutions Do Now?

    As radical, as mother, as salad, as shelter: What should art institutions do now? compiles responses to a survey distributed to curators, museum directors, artists, and writers in the wake of Trump’s election to office,  and it asks big picture questions about the role and value of art institutions during a crisis. One question in the survey is simply “How can art institutions be better?” As we move into a new presidency and new year in 2021, I’m hoping we can revisit this text as a jumping point to imagine new, visionary forms of arts organizations, going far beyond “better” into the entirely revolutionary.” –Ceci Moss

    Back by popular demand! Join our virtual listening session, held via Zoom, to receive constructive and affirming feedback from your peers! Whether you need some fresh ears on a finished track or are stuck on what to do with that vocal melody, this is the place to share your works-in-progress. Attendees will be asked to email FeM Synth Lab a recorded file to femsynthlab@gmail.com the week before the workshop. During the session, we will take turns listening as a group to each other’s work, giving folks an opportunity to share positive comments. We aim to provide a supportive environment for the vulnerable act of sharing work, while acknowledging the impact of imposter syndrome on our creative practices. At a time when many of us are alone frequently, we invite you to tune in to sounds collectively.
