Artist Maria Gaspar with Radioactive Instructor, Michael De Anda Muñiz in conversation with Radioactive Ensemble members Rahmon Ali, Christopher Coleman, and Alexander Soto

Join us for a public discussion that examines the work of the Radioactive Project, a year-long community-based art project with detained individuals inside Cook County Jail which resulted in a large-scale public art installation on the jail wall this fall. Talking to Action artist Maria Gaspar is joined by Radioactive Ensemble members Rahmon Ali, Christopher Coleman, and Alexander Soto, as well as Michael De Anda Muñiz, co-instructor of the Radioactive art program. Together, they will share their experiences of developing an art project inside a place of incarceration with a public art outcome, producing audio and visual work that attempts to personify a seemingly invisible site, and the ways in which art can act as social intervention and community building.

This event is presented as a program of the Talking to Action exhibition, on view at Sullivan Galleries through December 8. Talking to Action: Art, Pedagogy, and Activism in the Americas is curated by Bill Kelley, Jr., curator and lead researcher with Karen Moss, consulting curator. Talking to Action is organized by Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis College of Art and Design as part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, and managed as a traveling exhibition by Independent Curators International (ICI).
