CrossLines: A Culture Lab on Interectionality

We just wrapped an amazing groundbreaking event, CrossLines: A Culture Lab on Intersectionality presented by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, over Memorial Day Weekend. We were invited along with 40 other artists to challenge issues such as race, gender, sexuality, and class to examine and reinvent our impact on history. Over 11,000 people attended the 2-day exhibit.

CrossLines raised the bar for cultural institutions to celebrate art in a way that is no longer dormant and hanging in museums, but rather as an immersive experience for many people creating a collective piece or a community even. Read more about what the curator Adriel Luis, the White House, our co-founder Sherry Meneses and other artists had to say about it. Plus more pics!

At #Crosslines, we shared our project, KRU 2016: The Artist Collection, featuring artists from DC & beyond. A collaborative tribute to culture, freedom, and artists who strive to not only satisfy their appetite for creative expression, but to also be the face of change while doing so.
