Join co-curator Aitina Fareed-Cooke and School and Docent Programs Coordinator Lindsay Kranz for a workshop on how to use the artworks on view in the special exhibition In These Truths as a catalyst for student-centered learning. This invitational exhibition focuses on Black artists, emerging and established, who, through a wide range of mediums, provoke and reconsider, defy and embrace, test and talk about our shared reality.

The workshop will include a guided tour through the exhibition to spur discussion and thoughtful exploration, a discussion of curriculum connections, and a hands-on art activity to support lesson plan development.

Space is limited; registration and pre-payment are required. Please register online or sign up at Albright-Knox Northland during open hours.

About the Speaker

Aitina Fareed-Cooke initially pursued creative expression in words, and later photography and music, to address the trauma of her early life. She has since become an accomplished Christian hip-hop artist (under the name A.I. The Anomaly) and award-winning photographer and has established her own photography and film company, Get Fokus’d Productions. As a coordinator and educator with various local nonprofit organizations, she has dedicated herself to helping young people claim the power to rewrite their own stories.

About the Exhibition

In These Truths is an exhibition of works by Black cultural producers, co-curated by two of Buffalo’s most influential, charismatic, and insightful artists, Edreys Wajed and Aitina Fareed-Cooke, in collaboration with Curator of Public Art Aaron Ott. This invitational exhibition focuses on Black artists, emerging and established, who, through a wide range of mediums, provoke and reconsider, defy and embrace, test and talk about our shared reality.
