Agitprop was founded in 2007 by artist David White with the help of numerous other individuals. The goal of the space was to blur the lines between the individual Artist, the Studio, the Gallery and the Neighborhood; and to re-imagine the form of the Gallery as tool for long term engagement with a particular locality. This engagement is implemented through horizontal collaborations across individuals, artists, small businesses, community activists and institutions. We orchestrate collaborative projects and events that take place on the streets, in galleries, in museums, in the media and a myriad of other places. We also host events in our space like the Literary Art Series currently curated by K. Lorraine Graham and James Meetze. Background on the Series can be found here.
Some other Agitprop initiatives and collaborations include:
