Artists Take the Street!

From a single sticky note at a subway stop to the largest one-day protest in U.S. history to mark Trump’s inauguration, expressions of public protest can take many forms, with art playing a crucial role. Artists Amy Khoshbin and Tania Bruguera, along with writer A.M. Homes, explored opportunities for creativity in activism, and detailed their work, which shares themes of cultural and familial identity, immigration, and human fortitude under extreme duress. They delved into the collaborative project, Word on the Street, curated by Khoshbin, and investigated the symbiotic relationship between art and social change. Moderated by Carmen Hermo Assistant Curator, Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art at the Brooklyn Museum.

Co-presented with Times Square Arts, The Watermill Center, House of Trees, and Artists at Risk Connection.
