Artists and The Solidarity Economy: Nati Linares and Caroline Woolard of Art.coop in Conversation
For nearly 150 years The Art Students League of New York has helped to revolutionize what it means to attend an “art school”. But the art world, and the world itself, is bigger than our landmark building on 57th Street, and there are more artists who deserve support then we can serve.
In this conversation with Nati Linares and Caroline Woolard, we’ll hear how today’s artists work together to build communities and economies that resist marginalization and foster collective action. The League once helped change inequitable “art school” norms by allowing women to study with the same live, nude models that male students did. Today, Art.coop asks “What would ‘art school’ look like if it embraced BIPOC cultural workers and students?” Join us, to hear about how this vital organization fights to create a more equitable art world, with a mission that’s independent of, but in spirit with The League’s philosophy of “by artists for artists”.
