From Black Power to Migrant’s Power

Corita Kent, “E Eye Love,” 1968, serigraph

Here’s another interesting article on the ways in which artists today are building on the activist art of the past.  The article also raises a point addressed in the Alonzo reading: what happens when activist art moves into the museum? Is it still activist?  The article reviews two exhibitions–one of the artist/activist/nun Sister Corita Kent and one of the art of the Black Power Movement–and the work of artists/activists focusing on immigrant rights campaigns.
