While communities across the United States are becoming more diverse, more globally connected and less territorialized, artistic institutions that are entrenched in frozen concepts of representation, interpretation, communication, programming and access; not only have less relevance within their communities, but find themselves in conflict with the very people for whom they were created.
Join some of the nations leading art scholars as they present the latest information and ideas and delve into the salient questions:
What role can artists and art institutions play with residents who live in an
increasingly globalized and continually de-territorialized world?
How can artists and art institutions organize sociopolitical and cultural
dis/order with this globalized existence?
