In Their Own Voice: The Artist in his/her society – 7:30 pm

Contemporary challenges — political, cultural, economic and ethical reposition the artist for a move beyond given discourses to present productions dedicated to fostering anew, kinds of loci of affiliation. Moving away from the romantic illusion of pure distance and total autonomy of art from society, this conversation with the artists re-inscribes the imbrication of artistic practice in social temporality.
