The Permeable Space: Socially Engaged Institutions

April 30, 2016
10:00am  -  11:30am
James Moore Theater — Level 1

Museums, galleries and art centers are institutions that have power. So how do socially engaged art activists work within institutions? What approaches can we use to facilitate space for change and speak the truth to power? This panel is made up of creative leaders who prioritize radical re-examinations in power relations in art institutions. Each will present for 10 minutes on a project, focusing on one central issue that can lead to new ways of seeing, making, doing, and activating within art institutions. Key ideas: permeable spaces, radical accessibility, authorship and politics.
