Back in March, artist and activist Ryan Stopera put together an evening of art and resistance at Third Place Gallery. The event featured works by artists pushing for change, and a panel discussion on how activism and artistic lives often intertwine. Now, Stopera is teaming up with Public Functionary for a second installment. Art & Resistance II is led by artists from Black Lives Matter and other movements. The day starts with workshops on reparations and shaping narrative and voice. At 2 p.m., get deep into discussions of how poetry, spoken word, and music can be tools for change. In the evening, a panel talk will feature movers and shakers, including artist and Ward 5 Minneapolis City Council candidate Jeremiah Bey, filmmaker E.G. Bailey, photographer and singer Sarah White, and dancer and organizer Maryanne Sergio Quiroz. They’ll be chatting, along with moderator Mica May Grimm, about how to create and maintain resistance. Stick around afterward for a community cook-out and tunes from DJ Michel Be and Mica May. A mixed-media photo exhibit, created by Stopera and Jared Tuttle, will also be on display.
