Lynnée Denise receives Rauschenberg Artist as Activist Grant.
Lynnée Denise is honored to have been selected as a 2015 Rauschenberg Travel and Research Grant awardee for “The Global 80s” project. "The Global 80s" is a multi-city performative research project. It uses aspects of DJ culture to explore the social conditions and political temperature of nine cities to understand the way music expressed the collective mood of people impacted by institutional racism and displacement in the 1980s. Essentially, "The Global 80s” is a tribute to the bodies that disappeared from communities of colors for reasons that include HIV/AIDs, mass incarceration and xenophobic immigration policy.
