April Reading Group: Carefully Tending Traditions — a Conversation with Rupy C. Tut and Jason Wyman

Who are your ancestors and what practices of theirs do you carry with you today?

In April, join Rupy C. Tut and Jason Wyman for a conversation on care, creative collaboration, and navigating tradition. Drawing on selected readings, works of art, and their own work and practices, the discussion will address how we might work collectively to build and imagine new worlds. As Arahmaiani writes in her “Manifesto of the Sceptics”: “Our art must not be separated from life and become mere decoration. Art must be able to encourage a new awareness of humanity and a new social consciousness.”


  • Rupy C. Tut, “Search and Rescue,” a personal essay about Rupy C. Tut’s first post-pandemic solo show at Jessica Silverman Gallery in April of 2022.
