Critical Times, Critical Thinkers: Art, Activism, Resilience

Wednesday, April 28, 2021 - 12:00pm

Wednesday, April 28, 12:00 PM EST
Zoom registration:

This panel aims to present a critical exchange amongst global artists and curators about the response of the arts and artists to current global crises and hierarchies and histories of hegemonic power. We want to explore art and social activism as both “resistance,” or “dissidence” and also as individual and collective “resilience” to crises and political restrictions (praxis). Speakers will discuss how artistic work can support critical thinking, social action and solidarity among human collectives seeking to free themselves from systems of oppression.
