Public Art + Dissent: Art, Protest and Public Spaces Mini-Course - Day 1
Location:
Online via Zoom
Sponsored by:
Asian Studies Center, Center for Latin American Studies, European Studies Center, Global Studies Center and National Consortium on Teaching About Asia
See Details

Throughout our history, art and artists have resisted oppression, violence, injustice, and inequality. Some of the world’s most interesting art is on the streets and easily accessible to all. In this workshop we will discuss how protest art uses public space to engage in dialogue between the artist and the public. At an unprecedented moment in geopolitics, the work of public artists amplifies activism, resistance, and solidarity. Artists give context and vision to broad social movements, supporting those who have been marginalized and who need justice. Artists around the world question what is and why that transcends national boundaries and politics . We will examine works of Ai Wei Wei, Keith Herring, murals from Northern Ireland, to the Black Lives movement.

Monday, November 9
6:00 - 8:30 pm (Eastern Time)
Caitlin Bruce: "Visual Noise: Street Art in Activism and Placemaking in Bogotá Colombia"
Eric Shiner: "Ai Weiwei: Art Shall Liberate the World"
