A Town Hall Meeting on Art and Politics
February 27, 2017 at 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The Art Market MA program sponsors A Town Hall Meeting on Art and Politics, a discussion with industry professionals about the role of art vis-à-vis our current political climate. This participatory conversation will pose the question: What next?
Many anticipate that Donald Trump’s presidency will benefit the art market through deregulation and tax cuts for the ultra-wealthy. Yet the election also exposed a complacency that has left many feeling complicit in the status quo and questioning the role of art in society. How can art serve a broader public, and not merely the economic elite? Is art too self-referential, too conceptual, too formal, too individualistic to be relevant to society at large?
Featured speakers: Ariel Adkins, Brian Boucher, Ambre Kelly and Andrew Gori, John Post Lee, Walter Robinson, Amol Sarva, Christian Viveros-Fauné, and others.
This event is free and open to the public, however, registration is requested; register here.
