The Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art at Cal State San Bernardino will host an insightful talk by artist Tamara Cedré, a CSUSB long-time lecturer of art and design, on Oct. 19 at 5 p.m.
Cedré will share insights into her recent project, “A Space Between Us,” and will discuss her artistic practice and creative process. During her talk, Cedré will address how her recent collaborative projects have led her to discover self-publishing as a place for advocacy and resistance. She will also dive into the zine generated by the project and its impact on the community.
Under the Your Actions Save Lives statewide campaign to fight COVID-19, Cedré, along with collaborators James M. Dailey, Juan Carrillo-Dominguez and Adrian Metoyer III, worked with members of the San Bernardino community to bring forward their stories, reveal individual truths, and highlight the community’s struggles during unprecedented times. The project, which began as a public art initiative to provide community resources and increase education to help stop the spread of the virus, has since evolved into a community-centered zine called The Space.
Cedré’s talk promises to be a fascinating exploration of her artistic process, her collaborations and the impact of her work on the community. The Space Special Edition #4 will also be available at the lecture.
Concurrent with this lecture is an exhibition at the Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art, which will be on view through Dec. 16. The exhibition includes various mediums, such as photography, video and audio stories, along with a special issue of The Space zine.
This lecture will be available both in person and through a live stream on Zoom. To register, visit the “Tamara Cedré Self-Publishing as an Act of Resistance” Zoom link.
