November is a recently formed and democratically run network of anti-capitalist visual artists, formed for “mutual assistance; to promote work; to share ideas for anti-capitalist strategies in contemporary art; to cultivate the working-class audience for such art; to counter the echoes of post-modern cynicism; and to build practical solidarity with today's struggles.”
Kelly Gallagher is an experimental animator, filmmaker and associate professor at Antioch College. She is primarily interested in handcrafted filmmaking and exploring the ways in which experimental and handcrafted animations make labor visible, gesturing toward the relations of their production as handcrafted abstraction.
Ian Matchett is a graduate of the University of Michigan’s School of Art and Design. His paintings explore the connections between radical movements and individuals of the past and present. When the past is forgotten, or remembered only as a distorted caricature, our ability to unify and act in the present is crippled.
Sarah Levy is an artist and revolutionary from Portland, Oregon who was recently living in the West Bank.
Danica Radoshevich is an artist and MFA candidate at Washington University’s Sam Fox School of Art and Design in St Louis. Her painting, photography, installations and writing are the primary vehicles by which she attempts to map out the spatial realm. She hopes one day to reconcile the pheno-menological project with Marxism.
