Dualities and Dichotomies in Community-Based Arts Practices
This panel brings together a diverse group of internationally recognized artists for a critical dialogue on the ability of socially engaged art and community art centers to address a variety of challenges facing urban centers.
Panelists will explore a range of subjects around their various practices, including politics, both within local communities and as related to development concerns, issues of race and class, (where they come up and how they’re negotiated) and questions of sustainability. The conversation will expand the dialogue around art and the social space, and explore how community art centers might speak to the current place and purpose of public art.
