Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Young Artists at Work present Visions of an Abolitionist Future, a youth-created performance/exhibition that takes a critical look at the crisis of mass incarceration in America, and begins to theorize strategies for intervention, change, and liberation.
The opening night party on Friday, April 11, 2014 is the second-annual YBCA Teen Nite, an open house for teens to come check out the contemporary art and ideas of YBCA.
Featuring live teen performances, free food, and free gallery admission, YBCA welcomes you to find out more about how you can get involved in all of the rad programs YBCA offers—especially the Young Artists at Work program: a paid, year-long, multidisciplinary arts-as-activism residency for youth
The visionary young artist-activists of the YBCA’s Young Artists at Work program have spent the past year examining the complex matrix of oppression that perpetuate the Prison Industrial Complex. With the guidance of YBCA artist-mentors, they’ve designed and produced original works of video, illustration, sculpture, multimedia installation, and performance to be exhibited throughout the YBCA Galleries and Forum building.
