Art and Social Change
KC Adams, Daniel J. Kirk, Rita McKeough, Joseph Tisiga
Moderated by Peter von Tiesenhausen
Can art serve as a catalyst for activism? Is politically- or socially-mobilized art at risk of being co-opted by the institutions that it aims to critique? KC Adams, Daniel J. Kirk, Rita McKeough and Joseph Tisiga – artists whose work has critically examined and unsettled political or social structures – will join Peter von Tiesenhausen in conversation to question if and how art and art-making can subvert the everyday and lead to meaningful social change.
