Reorienting the Imaginaries brings together artists of color who are connected by complex histories, identity and power to disrupt the unwarranted representations imposed upon them by the Western gaze. The colonial imaginary is a romanticism of exotic places and people that through time and again have been used to justify the mechanisms of subjugation. Yet, when these processes become recoded as a platform for resistance, the imaginary is reoriented as method for creating new futures and narratives

As part of the exhibitions programming, the Makers’ Market moves beyond representational identity politics to highlight makers and organizers in a variety of industries. Participating vendors are taking control of their own means of production and red that is rooted in community building and engagement based on community needs.
