Event description
Part of the KHC/NEH 2019-2020 Colloquium: Authoritarianism on the Continuum

About this Event

Artists have been responding to governmental action across the world throughout history. Focusing on artist responses to repression, state aggression, and authoritarianism in places like the United States, the Middle East, and other parts of the world, this event will investigate both the past and present. Cultural activist and artist Cannupa Hanska Luger (Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, and Lakota), whose collaborative work, Mirror Shield Project, is on view at the KHC will be present, as will Greg Sholette, artist, author, Professor of Art and Policy at Queens College-CUNY, and Co-Director of Social Practice Queens. Both speakers will discuss their work with activist art, and the ever-changing relationship between art, activism, and government.
