Talking About a Revolution: Art, Design & the Institution is a two-day symposium that will explore the role(s) of art, design and the art institution in effecting social and political change.
At a time when basic human civil rights and civil liberties are being egregiously renegotiated and unjustly overturned in both the public and political spheres how does, should or can the artist, designer, curator, institution, and art community respond? How have they responded in the past and how are they responding now? Does art, design, and the institution have a voice or place in this struggle? Should it? What is its responsibility? How can art and design help shape a more just and equitable future?
Join us as we invite artists, designers, writers, educators, activists, curators, art institution leaders, and the public to discuss art actions, art futures and the art institution as a catalyst for social and political change. The symposium will include panel discussions, talks, public conversations, and a special performance.
Participants: Stephanie Dinkins, Daniel Byers, Brendan Fernandes, Maren Hassinger, Holly Hughes, Maria Hupfield (Native Art Department International), Ingrid LaFleur, Josh MacPhee, Jen Delos Reyes, Tylonn J. Sawyer, Gregory Sholette, Lumi Tan, and Marc-Olivier Wahler.
