General Sisters is an artist collaborative and community project that started with the idea to build a neighborhood-driven grocery store in North Braddock, PA where food scarcity and lack of access to nutritious and sufficient options is intrinsically tied to the systemic racial, economic, and environmental oppression. From this beginning and ongoing aspiration, General Sisters' artist projects have opened out into a series of investigations and engagements that think through the ways collective wealth is generated by gathering around a table, cultivating soil, sharing and building knowledge together, visualizing possibilities, and collective acts of nurturing. At Tufts University Art Galleries, installed at both the SMFA at Tufts Well Space and Remis Sculpture Court at Aidekman Art Center in Medford and through workshops across the academic year, General Sisters will create gathering spaces that ask questions with and of the Tufts community and reflect on our current pandemic moment through the lens of queer multiplicities of access, safety, and adaptation.
General Sisters is Dana Bishop-Root and Ginger Brooks Takahashi along with many other project specific collaborators. Organized by Abigail Satinsky, with Graduate Fellow Natalie Gearin, AG21.
