Reed Arts Week is proud to present RAW 2019: OUR REALITY? — Reed College’s student-curated annual arts festival featuring the visual art and performance of Reed students and internationally celebrated artists who visit campus during the festival. The theme of this year’s RAW reflects the artistic directors’ interest in the political nature of art and its potential to catalyze action. OUR REALITY? questions where we are, how we got here, and where we want to go.

RAW 2019 features visual art exhibitions by an outstanding group of POC artists. In addition to the exhibitions, RAW includes performances, lectures, and workshops by POC arts visionaries. OUR REALITY? is curated and organized by artistic directors Ruby Carmel, Gerry Peña-Martinez, Grey Saquee, and Tatiana Zancajo-Lugo.

This year’s Reed Arts Week will take place from October 28 to November 3, 2019 on Reed College campus. While a group of Reed faculty initially introduced Reed Arts Week in 1990,  the festival has come under the jurisdiction of students and this is the first year in which the annual event will be institutionally stewarded by the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery. All events are free and open to the public.
