Hunter East Harlem gallery has partnered with the Uptown Triennial to create the UPTOWN ARTIST GROUP PORTRAIT--a public event that invites any self-identifying artist living and/or working in Uptown, Manhattan to present themselves in a large group portrait--organized by Jason Lazarus. The portrait event is a program of Jason Lazarus: In Residence (June 19-September 1) at HEHG.
 
The goal of the portrait event is to foster exchange amongst the fluid artist communities that comprise Uptown and to create a historical moment for the present and future generations. The community will own the image and the right to reproduce, distribute, and manipulate the image. The image, in full resolution, will be available via free download, by the public, in perpetuity.
 
The Uptown Artist Group Portrait is organized by Jason Lazarus, is curated by Arden Sherman, Director and Curator, Hunter East Harlem Gallery, Columbia University's Wallach Gallery, and the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance.
 
Photo Unveiling Reception: Saturday, August 12th at a reception at Hunter East Harlem Gallery at Hunter College.

The Case for Community Policing: Lecture by Dave Cazeau

The Case for Community Policing: Lecture by Dave Cazeau

A Century of Dissent at Hunter East Harlem Gallery is thrilled to host THE CASE FOR COMMUNITY POLICING, a lecture by Dave Cazeau, Phd Candidate at the Graduate Center, CUNY. 

The police department in the United States has historically represented the most oppressive aspects of the country, demonstrated through its treatment of African American and black citizens. The historical approach to law enforcement has been informed by a perspective provided by the wealthier class, which largely sought to maintain their status of privilege in society at the expense of the poor minorities in the country dating back to the antebellum era. Looking at the organization of the police department (PD) through institutional theory, we see that the legitimacy that the organization sought came from the wealthier class, who historically informed and supported local police agendas. Given the current climate, where police reform is a more popularized initiative, community policing, a more socially inclusive approach to law enforcement is explored and suggested for a redefinition of the legitimacy sought by PDs, a legitimacy that will be given its social context in a country where the racial and ethnic demographics are changing.
