Panel Discussion, Talking to Action: Art and Politics in the Americas
Thursday, September 26, 5:30-7 PM
Pratt Manhattan Gallery
144 West 14th Street, Second Floor
New York, NY
Opening Reception: 6-8 PM
Moderated by Macarena Gómez-Barris, cultural critic, in conversation with Bill Kelley, Jr., curator, and Jennifer S. Ponce de León, scholar.
Talking to Action investigates contemporary, community-based social art practices in the United States and Latin America while attempting to build a direct dialogue with artists and researchers across the hemi-sphere to discuss shared concerns, issues, and art practices. The artists in Talking to Action explore a range of transdisciplinary practices, blurring the lines between object making, political and environmental activism, community organizing, and performance.
Talking to Action will be on view at Pratt Manhattan Gallery from September 27 - December 14, 2019. Read more about the exhibition here.
