CROSSING THE BRIDGE – How do Artists Respond to Climate Change, The Anthropocene; Immigration and Social Injustice? – Kelly Driscoll
June 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 pm
A wide range of artists take on these issues in a diversity of formats creating platforms for change through socially engaged practices. The conventional notions of aesthetic autonomy are redefined and negotiated. This talk will introduce individual artists and artist collectives who see their work as a vehicle to bring about discussion and foster change.
