Exhibiting artist Dindga McCannon visits the ICA for the closing week of the exhibition We Wanted A Revolution. McCannon, who is an author, illustrator, painter, and more, actively participated in critical moments in the history of art, including as a member of the Weisui Artist Collective in the 1960s and the Where We At collective composed of professional women of color who supported one another’s creative careers in the 1970s. Join McCannon as she recalls her earlier years as an artist in New York, her many subsequent accomplishments as an artist, and her active involvement in this expansive touring exhibition that recognizes the many important contributions of women of color from the 1960s to 80s.
