This spring The Dalton Gallery of Agnes Scott College will present Can You Hear Us Now?, a student-designed exhibition of activist art and ephemera by young adults in the Atlanta area from March 31st to May 6th, 2022. Can You Hear Us Now? aims to oppose various historically exclusionary practices in the art world, create space for communities and conversations, and highlight the rich narratives of activism that stem from young adults in Atlanta. Alongside the exhibition, The Dalton Gallery will publish a website that will feature art from the show, links to organizations in Atlanta, activist ephemera, and other research. In April, the gallery will host programming with local activist organizations and artists.

THE ORGANIZER:

Lillian Jackson is a senior art history major at Agnes Scott College. Her research interests focus on socially engaged art, contemporary art, current museum practices, and curatorial activism. She grew up just outside of Atlanta, GA, and began engaging with the art world in Atlanta from early on in her childhood. Her goal is to use this experience as a base to expand the museum world, setting an example of how museums can engage with socially engaged art and activism in their galleries and through their connections with the community.

 

The Dalton Gallery of Agnes Scott College is a teaching gallery located in the heart of the Dana Fine Arts Building on ASC’s campus. Agnes Scott officially opened The Dalton Gallery in the Charles A. Dana Fine Arts Building on October 24, 1965. Named in honor of Harry L. Dalton and his wife, Mary Keesler Dalton ’25, the gallery forms the central public area on the main floor of the building. The opening event featured an exhibition of fifty-five paintings which Mr. and Mrs. Dalton had given to Agnes Scott to augment the college’s permanent art collection. Today the Dalton Gallery works closely with the Department of Art & Art History, recognizing the inherent expressive value of art, its enrichment of the human experience, and the dependence of global culture on visual literacy.
