Event Details

The FSU Civil Rights Institute and Museum of Fine Arts invite you to join us for an evening reflecting on the intersections of environmentalism, equity, and justice. Tour A Shared Body, an exhibition focusing on artwork that contextualizes water access as a civil right, and watch a performance by Structures for Change, a collective of FSU School of Dance faculty and students.

A Shared Body is an exhibition of work by seven contemporary artists, including Pope.L, Calida Rawles, and Cannupa Hanska Luger. With subject matter ranging from the Middle Passage to Flint, Michigan, and the Dakota Access Pipeline, the exhibition specifically focuses on the impact of water access to Black and Indigenous communities.

Structures for Change is a dance, song, and story collective featuring faculty and students from the School of Dance as well as collaborators around the world. For the past several months, Structures for Change has been using the museum as a creative research lab and have developed a piece in response to Cannupa Hanska Luger’s Mirror Shield Project. On December 3 they will be joined by vocalist Karen Wilson-Ama’Echefu. See a preview of their work here. The program will also include a performance by School of Dance graduate student Yutong Li.

 

All MoFA programs are free and open to the public. Parking will be available in the Call Street Garage for this event. FSU expects masks to be worn indoors by all visitors, students, staff, and faculty. If you do not have a mask, the Museum can provide you with one.
