Description

Marked by a resurgent artistic interest in social, civic, and community engagement, questions of authorship, accountability, and responsibility are front and center in the discourse of current performance practices. Social and cultural producer Gavin Kroeber leads a conversation with a group of artists who create participatory performance works with social valences, exploring the slippage between theater and the performative act of activism, asking what we gain and lose when art assumes or imitates various forms of civic practice.

Moderator: Gavin Kroeber

Participants: Adam Horowitz, Melanie Joseph, Aaron Landsman, Todd Shalom, and Niegel Smith
