Exhibition: Tearing Down & Building Up


Five Demands

"Tearing Down & Building Up" is an exhibition conceived for the 50th Anniversary of the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity (OMA&D) at the University of Washington. The five walls draw inspiration from the five demands made during the 1968 occupation of the UW president's office by members of the Black Student Union, and uses the visual language of construction to demonstrate tearing down in order to build up. This concept was completed and built in the North Allen Library on the UW campus as "Revolution and Evolution."
