From stencils to ‘zines to graffiti and poster art, “Subverting the Media” takes us on a trip through the alternative media scene. East Harlem muralist James De La Vega, anti-patriarchal poster collective “Sister Serpents”, Bronx-based graffiti group, “Tats Cru” and Sabrina Margarita Sandata, a feminist zinester, challenge social and cultural stereotypes through their work. The program explores the potential everyone has to create their own media, examines the process for creating the message, and demonstrates how to go out and make your own media.
