Sixty Inches From Center
Chicago, IL

Sixty Inches From Center, in partnership with the Chicago Park District’s Arts & Culture Unit (ACU), produces a multiauthor publication, Finding Ceremony, with art publisher For The Birds Trapped In Airports and editor Kamilah Rashied. The book chronicles ACU’s inaugural Anchor Curatorial Residency, awarded to Tiffany M. Johnson. Johnson’s residency and exhibition project at the Park District’s Austin Town Hall Cultural Center examined the tensions between safety, care, and the visibility of Black and Brown lives in the municipal space. The book offers a model of community-centered curation, showing how municipalities can leverage their structural, human, and natural resources to empower cultural workers and artists as interlocutors in collaboration with communities.
