Art History from Home: Art and Activism
After the upheaval of the revolution in Mexico, a new relationship between art and the public was established, giving rise to art that spoke directly to the people about social justice and the potential for activism. This session will explore the profound impact this model had on artists in the United States, inspiring them to create epic narratives about American history and everyday life and to use their art to protest economic, social, and racial injustices.

Ayanna Dozier is an artist, lecturer, curator, and PhD Candidate at McGill University. Her dissertation, Mnemonic Aberrations, examines the formal and narrative aesthetics in Black feminist experimental short films in the United Kingdom and the United States. She is the author of the forthcoming 33 1/3 book on Janet Jackson’s The Velvet Rope.
