Join us as curator and co-founder Tempestt Hazel discusses the mission, holdings, and projects of Sixty Inches From Center. Sixty Inches documents the stories of Chicago artists, cultural workers, architects, organizers, memory workers, and writers of the LGBTQ+, femme, BIPOC, diasporic, and disabled communities. Their work focuses on engaging with those communities whose art and work exists outside the city’s mainstream cultural institutions. Tempestt Hazel is a curator, writer, and co-founder/co-director of Sixty Inches From Center, and also currently directs the arts and culture grantmaking at The Field Foundation. Through her work at Sixty Inches From Center, Field Foundation, and several other cultural organizations and initiatives across Chicago and the Midwest, Tempestt has worked alongside artists, organizers, grantmakers, and cultural workers to explore solidarity economies, cooperative models, and values-based practices that are embedded at all levels of an organization.
