Talk with Author & Artist Pablo Helguera: The Spaces of Socially Engaged Art, January 31, 2019, 12:55-1:45 PM
Over the last decade, several artists with diverse backgrounds opted to move out of the conventional spaces of art to create experiences, relationships, actions and dialogues with individuals, often with the goals to contribute to particular social and political issues in their neighborhoods. This site-specific approach, working with specific communities and involving all aspects of the visual art discipline along with performance, architecture, urbanism and education, acquired the designation of socially engaged art or social practice.
