Silicon Valley De-Bug's Class Conscious Photographers and Studio Grand present Eyes on the Movement: Images from Bay Area Activist Photographers.
At a critical time in history where racial tensions are at a head, photography is an important tool for radical social change, if it is produced by photographers who are part of the social movements they're documenting, and if their perspective is to expose the abuse of the system, to show how it can be changed, and by who. From immigrants rights, workers' rights, police accountability, to economic justice campaigns, this show features the stories and images of our vibrant social justice movements in the Bay Area -- powered by working class people of color and captured by photographers embedded in these struggles.
Join us for the opening reception; meet the photographers; and hear about the movements they're a part of. In addition to the exhibit, photos from the May Day marches happen earlier that day will be shared as well. We'll also have performances by Andrew Bigs and ASPIRE as well as DJ Agana bringing some music to the space.
Please join us on Thursday, June 11th, for a closing reception and discussion. More details to come. This exhibit will be on view through June 15, 2015.
