Art as Resistance - Saturday, August 23, 2014.

Saturday August 23, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm | Free

I am looking forward to speaking at this panel discussion on socially engaged art, resistance, and revolution, alongside a stellar crew of engaged artists.

Save the date and join us! Art as Resistance

Beyond illustrating the issues at stake, can aesthetic forms themselves offer models for collaboration and movement building?

How do artists’ practices shift in response to revolution? Is a revolution a work of art?
What decolonizing strategies can we learn from artists performing and inserting their work in public space?

What role does spectacle play in creating an open space for dissent?
