      PANEL: "Tactics are the New Strategy" Chair: Pilar Tompkins Rivas, UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center, Artist Pension Trust Panelists: Nao Bustamante, Independent Artist; Carolina Caycedo, Independent Artist; Sandra de la Loza, Independent Artist Tactical stratagems in contemporary art may serve as devices that enable women artists to weave threads between multiple layers of public and private settings, feminist and post-colonialist discourse, and to navigate the complexities of a socio-political landscape. This panel discussion focuses on women’s artistic practices that are rooted in activist strategies and which address the nature of power structures throughout the Americas. Whether through guerilla-style tactics, institutional critique, urban intervention or subversive participation in mainstream media, artists examine radical politics, the effects of American policies and popular culture, institutionalized racism, and gender and economic inequities. Aligned with contemporary discourse about public practice, these artistic dialogs address participation in the economies of the art world leveraged by an engagement in alternative and informal economies. EVENT: Shares & Stakeholders: The Feminist Art Project Day of Panels at the 100th Annual College Art Association Conference The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) February 25, 2012 Organized by Audrey Chan and Elana Mann http://sharesandstakeholders.com

          In August of 2009 a production team from PBS affiliate station, Colorado Public Television – CPT12 followed Colorado artist Mary Mackey as she returned to Berlin to repaint her mural “Tolerance” on the East Side Gallery of the Berlin Wall. In 1990 a few months after the Berlin Wall came down Mary moved to Berlin. As the only United States citizen selected to paint on this 1.3 kilometer preserved section of the Berlin Wall, Mary chose the topic of cultural tolerance as her subject. In the Spring of 2009, the Berlin government invited Mary back to restore her mural as part of the 20th anniversary of that world changing event. The East Side Gallery, as the 118 murals by international artist became known, is the longest preserved section of the Cold War barrier.

              In conjunction with the opening of Project Gallery: Gary Simmons, the artist discussed the newly commissioned, large-scale mural that he created for PAMM’s double-height project gallery with PAMM Curator René Morales. Gary Simmons’ project touches on the racially charged history of boxing, referencing the contentious nicknames of various great figures in the sport, from Joe Lewis (“The Mahogany Mauler”) to John Mugabi (“The Beast”). The composition features an eerie erasure effect, which the artist achieves by blurring his drawings with his hands. Recalling the look of chalk on blackboards, the effect reinforces the mysterious quality of Simmons’ imagery while suggesting movement, the fleetingness of time, the pliability of history, and the inevitable fading of cultural and personal memory. Scholl Lecture Series: Gary Simmons was held at PAMM on November 13, 2014

                  Youth Visions was a multi-layered project that took place in Northeastern Ghana. I directed a performance and a mural painting project as well as developed a documentary to show the process. The project was on HIV/AIDS prevention in the sub-sahara. The documentary itself then served as its own learning tool, being shown at red cross stations and to peace corps volunteers in the region.

                      Between 1975 and 1989, the Polish-born expressionist artist, Feliks Topolski, worked on a 600ft mural in the railway arches in Waterloo. This masterpiece came to depict the 20th Century as he saw it, featuring the important events and people that forged the modern world that we now live in. Topolski was born in Poland in 1907 and came to London from France in 1935. He soon established himself in the intellectual life of London and eagerly took up a position as an official war artist during WWII. In 1947 he gained his British Citizenship and he went on to make portraits of the likes of H.G. Wells, Graham Greene, Evelyn Waugh, and Harold Macmillan. His 600ft mural in the railway arches of Waterloo is now open to the public as the Topolski Century gallery. Daniel Topolski is a writer and broadcaster, and Trustee of the Topolski Century. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/feliks-topolski-eye-witness-to-the-20th-century Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.
