Alternate Currents

How do we understand and interpret the significance of socially and politically engaged artwork in a culture that values product over process, commodity over collaboration? How can artists, arts organizations, and philanthropy mutually reinforce working relationships rooted in trust and care to lay the groundwork for projects that put people before profit?

On Wednesday, September 27th at 7pm CST panelists Annika Johnson, Diana Martinez, and Alajia McKizia will join moderator Jared Packard for Amplify’s next in-person Alternate Currents panel discussion, ‘Irony, Wonder, Allusion: Evaluating Social Practice’ at the Ashton in Millwork Commons to consider how critical and evaluative frameworks might change to more fully embrace the uncertainties, indecipherable rewards, and generative failures inherent in socially and politically engaged work.
