Day in, day out: Art as social engagement

    Nicolás Dumit Estévez brings together the Guerrilla Girls, Alicia Grullón, Juan Sánchez, and Mary Ting for a conversation on the legacy of activisms in the burgeoning field of socially engaged art. This dialogue serves as a point of departure for a critical reflection and post-panel discussion on the most pressing issues raised by the work of social practitioners within the arts: artists’ visions versus participants’ expectations; long-term commitment with collaborating communities and its demands on the artist; treading the fine line between empowering or fetishizing disenfranchised individuals and groups; and the cooptation of the “radical” for aesthetic purposes, among others.

    Likewise, this panel invites all attendees to co-imagine uncharted strategies and creative pathways that can invigorate the pursuit of social justice and expand the definition of the artist and the arts in the wide, open world.
