At the Frieze art fair in New York, over 60 leading galleries are paying tribute to social justice, showing works by the world’s most influential artists.

The goal is to change how we see the world by examining art’s role in portraying race and citizenship. It expands on The Vision & Justice Project, a landmark 2016 issue by Aperture magazine on photography in the African American experience.

“For the past year, so many of us have not only seen the pandemic, but also the incredibly important Black Lives Matter movement,” said Rebecca Ann Siegel, director of content at Frieze. “This really felt like a moment to pay tribute to some work that is so resonant with today’s issues.”

Works by renowned artists such as Stan Douglas, Hank Willis Thomas, Lorraine O’Grady and Ming Smith are on display.

With Month of Photography just weeks away, photographers Tony Eitzel, Scott Wilson, Kevin Schwalbe and Westword contributor Evan Semón have opened Gallery 6, a 1,000-square-foot art space at 2434 East Sixth Avenue. There they plan to showcase the best photography around town, creating a go-to venue for photographers and art lovers.

With the support of the school staff, these art students flourished at home and continued to develop a pantheon of new artworks inspired by their individual experiences and growing identities.

This month, several of those students participate in Gallery Route One’s exhibition, “Tomales High School Artist Showcase 2021,” featuring paintings, drawings, photography and mixed media works.
