Egyptian Theatre, 328 Main St.
Art is uniquely capable of creating public “encounters” that are transformative and that activate our imagination and empathy in order to engage with issues of social justice. We explore the practice of artists who use art to push boundaries, provoke, inspire, disorient orthodoxy, and reshape culture. In asking what the artistic project of justice is, we have only to look at revolutionary narratives and radical forms of expression.
Artists including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ai Weiwei, Julie Taymor, Carrie Mae Weems, and Kerry Washington will discuss the nature of artwork as a catalytic cultural and sociopolitical force.
Presented by Netflix
This panel will have an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter on-site.
