The Tufts University Art Galleries Student Advisory Board (SAB) is a new initiative aimed at furthering student involvement in on-campus gallery spaces. A collective of students from a variety of academic backgrounds, from STEM fields to the visual arts and humanities, the SAB advises TUAG regarding student concerns and facilitates community

Focused programs in order to connect university-housed art spaces to both a broader Tufts population and local communities.

The SAB’s first exhibition, UNREST, evokes both internal the feeling of restlessness (isolation, inactivity, inertia) and the external phenomenon of civil unrest (social, political, class, organization). Since last March, turbulence has become an unavoidable reality for all of us—a feeling with which we can all identify. In UNREST, the SAB facilitates a space for students to creatively express their perspectives on and experiences during the pandemic. In the selection of works for our student-focused exhibition, the SAB took care to include a variety of narratives and magnify those perspectives that have been especially overlooked, giving voice to these inward and outward-facing experiences.

Organized by Anneke Chan A24, Geovani Cruz A23, and Sophie Feinstein A24 of the Tufts University Art Galleries Student Advisory Board 2020–2021.
