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 collaborations across individuals, artists, small businesses, community activists and institutions. We orchestrated collaborative projects and events that took place on the streets, in galleries, in museums, in the media and a myriad of other places. We also hosted events in our space like the Reading Series curated at various points by K. Lorraine Graham, James Meetze and Sandra and Ben Doller. Background on the Series can be found here.
