Headed by Sam Gould, Red76 is an amorphous collaborative structure that utilizes the skill sets of artists, activists, historians, cooks, musicians, printers, lawyers, and everyday citizens to investigate how we live in America today. These goals are most often realized in projects which look into past social histories, using these histories as a starting point to confront our current social and political realities. As well, the investigation, and experimentation within, contemporary social dynamics have long played a role within the groups practice.

Red76 have organized many self-initiated projects, as well as collaborating with institutions such as Printed Matter, Reed College, The Kitchen, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, ICA Philadelphia, and others.

Gould is an editor, along with John Vitale, of the arts journal “…….”, a co-founder of the Chicago, Illinois experimental social space MessHall, and a nominee for the 2007 De Menil Collection’s Walter Hopps Award for Curatorial Achievement.
