xChange Cincinnati

Local poet Hannah Ramlo from xChange Cincinnati

xChange Cincinnati is an event that celebrates local artists, activists and entrepreneurs who use their creativity as a vehicle for social change.  The one-night-only event is presented by Theatre for The Free People and is the culmination of the work that was created in the Artist as Activist/Cincinnati xChange Program at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center.

According to local poet Hannah Ramlo, who is curating the event, the program examines the artist as an environmental, ethical, humanistic and social activist.  The mission is to initiate conversations about the impact of art on society, and to raise awareness of the use of art as a tool for liberation.

Shrewdness of Apes presents: Shoebox

Hilary Nauman co-curator of Shrewdness of Apes

Local artists Hilary Nauman and Michael Boyd began exhibiting their work in pop-up shops, outdoor markets and at The City Flea.  The free-form spontaneity of this kind of exhibition has carried over and has led them to open Shrewdness of Apes - an art gallery that is different from what you might be used to.
