Art & Activism

Tuesday 26 February 2019, 15.00 – 17.00

Introduced by Elizabeth Peebles (Year 3 Leader) and Katrine Hjelde (GD Course Leader) with presentations by David Cross Artist and Reader at Chelsea, Camberwell and Wimbledon, and Louise Shelley, Curator.

An aim of activist artists is to create art that is a form of political or social currency, actively addressing cultural power structures rather than representing them or simply describing them. This KEY event will explore the critical potential between action and representation within art practice and consider the role of artist within and outside the institutions of art.
