In this live-streamed event, the collaborators have the platform to talk about topics that they feel are pertinent in the moment and you as the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions via the chat.
Related Tactics is a collective of artists and cultural workers producing creative projects, opportunities, and interventions at the intersection of race and culture. Our projects explore the connections between art, broader social issues, and the public through trans-disciplinary exchanges, making, and dialog. Related Tactics is a conceptual space and platform where we confront systemic and institutional racism or inequities that influence our immediate socio-cultural lived experience that benefit from collective support and sharing knowledge or resources. We do this through collaboration and critical thought strategically implemented amongst and for communities of color and the diaspora.
Related Tactics is a collaboration between Michele Carlson, Weston Teruya, and Nathan Watson though there are many community members that make our work possible. We work between the San Francisco and Washington DC areas. Our projects have been exhibited and supported by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Berkeley Art Center, Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery at Parsons School of Design (New York), Southern Exposure Gallery and Alternative Exposure Grants (San Francisco), Chinese Cultural Center (San Francisco).

The future now is a sprawling, site-responsive public art project by Related Tactics (Michele Carlson, Weston Teruya, Nathan Watson) on view from November 19, 2020-February 14, 2021. Illuminating facets of Black life in the city and exploring the state of national politics, this new commission will be viewable from the street and located in multiple sites within walking distance along the 3rd Street corridor of San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood.
