Familial and Collective Histories: Artist Talk with Sadie Barnette
Courtesy of Sadie Barnette
Join us on Saturday afternoon as artist Sadie Barnette discusses her work with familial and collective histories. Delving into projects ranging from the reclamation of a 500-page FBI file amassed on her father during his time with the Black Panther Party to her interactive reimagining of San Francisco's first black-owned gay bar, she expounds on her material interventions and glittering speculative spaces.
