Organize Your Own is a multi-city exhibition and event series organized by Daniel Tucker and presented in Philadelphia and Chicago. OYO features new work by contemporary artists and poets that responds to the mandate from the Black Power movement to “organize your own” community against racism. The exhibition is on view at Columbia College’s Averil and Bernard Leviton Gallery (Mar 3–Apr 9, 2016).
