Talk: Surveillance and Black Activism

**Tickets on sale to MCA Members on October 2 at noon. Tickets on sale to the general public on October 3 at noon.**

In 2017, a leaked FBI report identified “Black Identity Extremists” as a security threat, indicating an uptick in surveillance of black activist organizations. In relationship to the exhibition “Direct Message: Art, Language, and Power,” a group of artists and activists consider the state of contemporary activism and public speech, as well as the implications of government surveillance.

MCA Talks highlight cutting-edge thinking and contemporary art practices across disciplines and are organized by Curator January Parkos Arnall and Assistant Curator Christy LeMaster, with the Performance and Public Practice team.
