Beginning in the late 1970s, dance music culture began to take hold in nightclubs across the country. These were safe spaces for people of color, the LGBTQ community, and creatives seeking sanctuary from mainstream cultural norms. Through the photographer’s lens, we witness the ways in which these communities publicly embraced alternative identity and boundary-crossing music. Moderators Adrian Loving (educator/DJ/writer) and Vikki Tobak (journalist/culture writer will frame the conversation. Panelists to include Derrick May, Carleton Gholz, Adriel Thornton and Dee Jones. Free (suggested donation $5.00)

Carole Harris is a fiber artist, working primarily in the art of quilt medium. Her work has extended the boundaries of traditional quilting. Her process is improvisational. She lets the fabric and color lead her on a rhythmic journey, using combinations of commercially printed cottons, silks, linen, hand dyed, hand painted, vintage fabrics and paper thrown in. These materials are cut up, overlaid, hand stitched, burned, painted, repositioned, until she knows that she has arrived at her destination of a densely layered composition. Her work is included in many private and institutional collections and has been exhibited extensively worldwide. free

When left in a public area, this family relic is transformed into a symbol of abandonment, absence, flight. The process of recovering the leather is an intense and physical experience, evoking an image of social violence.
