At the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City, athlete Tommie Smith famously raised his fist in a silent gesture of civil and human rights solidarity while accepting the gold medal for the 200 meter race. This moment has since become a part of a visual language associated with the pursuit of justice, equality, and advancement of a social cause. During this artist talk, hear from artist Glenn Kaino and athlete Tommie Smith as they discuss their collaboration in creating Bridge (Section 1 of 6), a sculpture that commemorates this legacy.
Chapters is a six part series of artist talks, conversations, and performances that will take place over the course of the two-year exhibition.
