Third Thursdays

The Sound of Pride: FiSi @ the Gardner

Thursday, June 20, 2019
5:30 - 9 pm
Throughout the Museum

The “if you can Feel it, you can Speak it” Open Mic Movement, or FiSi, is Boston’s longest-running open mic dedicated to the voices of the LGBTQIA communities of color. Hosted every second Thursday of the month at the Milky Way in JP, the Mic was founded in 2009 and has been home for dozens of artists and those seeking space.

Programming for the Evening

Daniel Corral | In the Studio | 5:30–8:30 PM
Join artist Daniel Corral in creating a mosaic that celebrates the pride within yourself. Combine fun materials with images of queer historical figures and works selected from the Gardner's collection.

Artist Daniel Corral
Daniel Corral's work includes street vending culture and immigration rights based in Los Angeles, CA. Their work also examines queerness and queer spaces within their own community and utilizes the Camera Obscura technique to create a portal between the private lives and public agency of each individual. Corral was born in Woodland Hills, CA. and is based in Boston, MA. They studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Art (SMFA) at Tufts University. Currently, Corral is the Assistant Site Supervisor at the Institute of Contemporary Art.


As FiSi embarks on its ten-year anniversary, the members of Team Be Spoken (TBS) are excited to share their voices with the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum community. Each TBS member will perform a set of their own poetry, and culminate in a joint performance at the end.
