Event description

Description

Social practice, cultural activism, and community-led art-making. These terms have become familiar to us, and have only become more popular in recent times, but what exactly do they mean? What are the means and the ends of socially engaged arts projects? What kind of issues are artists responding to and how? How can the work itself gain wider traction in the field?

Join the Asian American Arts Alliance for a closer look at the socially engaged arts. Three artists will present their projects in a case study format and walk us through their projects’ underlying rationale, approach to working with communities, and desired impact. The presentations will be followed by a discussion with the artists and a Q&A with the audience.

Panelists include Tomie Arai (Project: Here to Stay with Chinatown Art Brigade), Sue Kong Ka (Project: ID Shop), and Zoey Martinson (Project: The Black History Museum According to the United States of America), moderated by Claro de los Reyes (Theatre Artist and 2013 Laundromat Project Create Change Fellow).

Can’t make the panel in person? Attend by Facebook Live or watch it later on our Facebook page.

You must attend either this panel or Case Studies: Behind-the-Scenes with Curators in person if you intend to apply for the Alliance's 2018 Van Lier Fellowships in Artistic Practice or Curation.
