Climates of Inequality – Environmental Justice in the IE: Community-based Practices in Art and Activism

Local social practice artists, documentarians, and activists Tamara Cedré, Noé Montes, and Anthony Victoria talk about the challenges of representing the slow violence of the supply chain, which digs deep into historical forces of colonialism, extraction, and exploitation of the land and people. With over a billion square feet of warehouses blanketing the I.E. and a vast infrastructure—freeways, railroads, and intermodal rail yards—carrying goods to market, how can the arts help humanize the issues and convey the magnitude of the impacts we feel today in Riverside and San Bernardino, where residents experience among the highest rates of air pollution and asthma in the state? 

Free, open to the public – RSVP here.

Please note Riverside Artswalk is the first Thursday of each month; admission is free at the Riverside Art Museum and The Cheech.
