Decolonize Dallas: Opening Reception

Nasher Sculpture Center

Michelada Think Tank and participating artists will present an overview of the DeColonize Dallas project and then open up a town hall style conversation around what it would mean to decolonize Dallas both as a civic and a cultural project.

Decolonize Dallas is a series of events and exhibitions that activate historical memory through culture in four contested sites throughout the city of Dallas during Dallas Arts Month, April 1st - April 30th, 2017. Decolonize Dallas, initiated by Michelada Think Tank, focuses on cultural producers and communities on the margins to reshape dominant narratives of identity and history in Dallas. Decolonize Dallas will take place in Vickery Meadow (American Heritage Indian Day, Ash Studios, Trans.lation Vickery Meadow), West Dallas (Angela Faz, Christian Vasquez, Dark Moon Poetry and Arts), Pleasant Grove (Tamitha Curiel, Dom G. Jones, Montoya Williams), and Southern Dallas (Super Fantasy Mercado).
