The Romance of Community: Supporting Artists in the 21st Century
Presented during “Social Practice.Social Justice” Symposium 2018 at Project Row Houses, Houston.
In this keynote address, I positioned artists, audiences, administrators, and funders within the complex ecosystem of the U.S. cultural economy. Framed by new research and case studies of organizational learning, this speech discussed issues of power amidst the (im)possibility of an ethical stewardship of art, capital, and labor.
Presented during “Imagining the Social in Artistic and Museum Practices,” Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on June 22, 2018, a symposium gathering practitioners and scholars of socially engaged art to consider how museums and other organizations can play a role in supporting the field. This keynote was followed by a conversation with artist Shaun Leonardo, historian Elizabeth M. Grady and curator Nat Trotman which can be viewed here.
