Panel Discussion


February 3, 2004, 7 pm – 9 pm

Southern Exposure presents ARTIVISM, a panel examining the role of the arts in the current political climate.  Artists and activists will present their work and address questions such as:

  • What are artist’s strategies for social commentary and political change?
  • How do artists negotiate between the communities they address and the fine art world?
  • How can politically-minded artists maintain their ideology while pursuing a professional career?

The dialogue will be followed by a question and answer session.

Participants: Claudia Bernardi (Artist, Educator & Human Rights Activist), Becky Bond (Creative Producer, Working Assets), Pratap Chatterjee ( Project Director, Corpwatch), Andy Cox (Founder, Together We Can Defeat Capitalism), Packard Jennings (Artist), Jessica Tully (Artist, Curator and Cultural Worker)
